At Edinburgh Airport and Jet2holidays have introduced a new service allowing you to check your bags in the day before your flight.

This move could make your journey a bit easier on the day of travel itself, allowing you just to walk through the security area to the departure lounge. (It only applies to flights leaving in the morning before 12 noon.)

The company has already introduced the service at other English airports where it has been deemed a great success.

First you check in online at least 24 hours before your flight and then visit the Twilight check-in at the airport where you can drop your bags at the Jet2 check in desk anytime between 3.00pm and 8.00pm the day before your flight.

The company says this service is most suited to those who are staying over in a hotel the night before or who live locally.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “As we approach the peak summer season, this is yet another example of and Jet2holidays investing in a VIP experience for our customers.

“Our free Twilight Check-In service is a smart and secure service that really adds to the overall holiday experience for our customers. The popularity of this service means we are delighted to be launching it from Edinburgh Airport, meaning customers can start their holiday with us luggage-free and breeze through the airport to catch their flight.”
