Check In Times

What’s that saying, “it’s better to be too early than too late”? Well that most certainly applies when checking in for a flight. You need to give yourself enough time to arrive, check in and get through security. No one wants to be the person whose name is being called over the tannoy! As a guide, we reccommend allowing yourself the following amount of time:
International Check In time is around 3 hours
European Check In time is around 2 hours
Domestic Check In time is around 90 minutes
Fast Track to streamline the security process
Why not streamline the security process with a Fast Track ticket? From just £4.49 per adult at Edinburgh Airport, it’s a very small price to pay for no queuing!
