Boarding and check-in

Recommended check-in: 1hr before flight departs

Check-in closes 30 minutes before your flight departs. After this time, you may have to book a new ticket at your own cost, and we can’t offer refunds or credit vouchers if you miss the cut off time.

We therefore ask you to check-in at least an hour before your flight – to be on the safe side, and give you time to relax. Please also be sure to allow plenty of time to reach the airport, especially in school holidays.
