How early do I need to be at the airport? Updated 13/02/23

All airlines recommend that you arrive at least 2 hours before your scheduled time of departure, for long-haul flights it is recommended that you arrive at least 3 hours before your scheduled departure time.

We recommend all passengers check the relevant airport or airline's website for any disruption or amendment to flight timings prior to travelling.

We would hate for you to miss your flight, so the above times should allow for heavy traffic, train delays or delays at the security areas. No airlines will refund your ticket if you miss your flight and they will charge you to re-book on to an alternative flight - if there is space available.
