Check-In

We strongly recommend arriving at your UK departing airport at least two hours prior to your departure time allowing sufficient time for check-in and security.

Many airlines operate a ticketless system and the passenger is required to check in on line. The pre-departure literature sent to you includes information regarding check-in procedures.

Hand Luggage

Airlines have individual restriction regarding hand luggage, however as a general rule:

  • One piece of hand luggage is permitted – infants don’t have additional allowance.
  • Liquids – There are restrictions on the amount of liquids you can take in your hand luggage. If possible, pack liquids in your hold baggage (luggage that you check in).

If you do take liquids in your hand luggage then:

  • containers must hold no more than 100ml
  • containers should be in a single, transparent, resealable plastic bag, which

holds no more than a litre and measures approximately 20cm x 20cm

  • contents must fit comfortably inside the bag so it can be sealed
  • the bag must not be knotted or tied at the top
  • it is limited to 1 plastic bag per person
