On Line check in for Cathay Pacific flights and any onward flights on partner (i.e. OneWorld) carriers is available 48 hours up to 90 minutes prior to flight departure. Facilities allow you to select a seat for yourself and your companions, change your seat, add or update your Frequent Flyer Number, print a Check-In Confirmation, get the latest departure and weather information, collect your boarding pass at CXpress Check-In Kiosk (where applicable) and drop your bags at the dedicated Online Check-In Counters at the airport.

The service is available for Marco Polo Club members, Asia Miles members, Registered Users who have booked online, and; Passengers holding e-Tickets issued by Cathay Pacific Airways (and that includes etickets issued on CX by travel agents).

One important point that may be relevant is that no baby car seat can be used in the new Business Class due to safety and regulatory requirements. So, only one infant who is under 2 years of age and does not occupy a seat can be accepted when traveling with 1 adult passenger

Bassinet : All Cathay aircraft are equipped with special baby bassinets. A bassinet measures 76.20cm (30") x 38.10cm (15") x 20.32cm (8") and can carry up to 12kgs. Please note however a baby older than 6 months may feel uncomfortable in a bassinet. A request for a baby bassinet (BSCT) can be made at time of reservation if passenger is travelling with an infant. Sooner rather than later, though, as there are (as there are on any airline) only a limited number available.

Seating: No special arrangements apply. Anyone using the online checkin can select their seat during the process. Note that if you frequent flyer card generates a seat for you at time of booking, you will not see a seat map during the check in process.

Online Check-In is available for all Cathay Pacific flights with the exception of: Flights departing from Bahrain, Colombo, Xiamen, Hanoi, and Langkawi (which are, basically, charter Flights) and Codesharing flights operated by Cathay partner carriers. (That is (eg)  a British Airways flight from, say, London to Manchester that happens to carry a CX flight number)
