Thomson Airways on line check in

Can anyone clarify how far in advance flights will open up for on line check in purposes?

I don't think they've stated much about the particulars yet, other than if you're flying to the US, Cuba or Mexico you won't be able to check in until 24 hours prior.

Have you asked Thomsons?

No I haven't contacted Thomsons, however, you did answer my question as I am travelling to Mexico next month so it will be 24 hours for me!

Thank you for the quick reply

You can check in on-line 2 weeks before your flight if you have pre-booked your seats or 7 days before if no seats are booked, as per Thomson's FB page.

I'd just noticed that you asked on there. It's a pity they don't update their website, but then again it is Thomsons! It had better work ok given that it's 8 months late being introduced.

Hi LS, I also asked them if there would be a charge if you didn't CIOL, they said no, but according to a post made by Angie (can't find anything on the website about that either) they might charge to check in at the airport!

Any idea when the OLCI actually starts? I'm not on facebook, so if it's a public page maybe someone could provide a link.

Thomson Airways is planning to launch online check-in on 18 February 2014.

From this date, if you’d like to use our day before bag drop service at Gatwick, Manchester or Birmingham, you must have checked-in online. When dropping your bags, you'll need to show your home-printed boarding passes to our airport staff. From 18 February 2014,https://flightextras.thomson.co.uk/webxsr/webxsr?ref=Ynkudmlld0Jvb2tpbmdEZXRhaWxzSW1wbA%3D%3D to check-in online and print your boarding passes.

I copied this from another post on here (playa del Carmen) forum hope this helps

Big issues being reported today on their Facebook page as the new website to 'Select Seats' and Online Check-in is not letting some people log in !!!!
