Early check-in

Save time and check-in the evening before your flight

Some airlines now allow you to check-in the day before you fly – which is very handy if you live locally or are staying overnight near the airport. You can then get rid of your baggage the day before, and relax without worrying about early morning queues.

The following airlines offer day-before check-in – though terms and conditions apply, so you should check with them for more information:
