Check-in desks open at 5:00am and Bag Drop desks open 2 hours before the flight departure time (from 5:30am).

If you have checked in online or on your mobile, you can print your boarding pass at a check-in kiosk or download it using the BA app.

If you are travelling with hand baggage only and already have your boarding pass, you can go straight through security to the gate.

Be on time for your flight

Please make sure you have enough time to check in, get through security and to your flight on time:

  • check in no later than 20 minutes before your flight departs
  • enter security at least 35 minutes before your flight departs
  • be at the boarding gate at least 10 minutes before your flight departs

If you do not meet these times you will not be accepted for travel.
