The check-in areas are located at the left or western end of the landside concourse and are clearly signed within the terminal. If you have already checked in online and only have hand baggage you may go directly through security to the departure lounge.
When to arrive
Check your ticket or contact your airline for advice on checking-in times.
To save time, have your tickets and identification ready (passport, driving licence or citizen card), and make sure your hand baggage contains only valuables and items you will need during the journey. Alternatively, you may be able to use self-service or online check-in.
Lots of airlines offer online check-in from two to 24 hours before departure. You will be able to choose your seat or print your boarding card from your PC – and when you get to the airport, simply take your baggage to the bag drop facility.
We recommend that you check the maximum size of hand luggage allowed with your airline, prior to your departure.
Security and boarding
There's plenty to do in the departure lounge, whether you want to visit the duty free shop, Food Village and bar or just relax in the lounge. There is free Wi-Fi and a TV available for enjoyment of passengers. We recommend you go directly through security after check-in and into the departures lounge. Information screens in the departures lounge show flights, boarding times and gate numbers. Boarding times can vary, but usually begin around 20 minutes before departure.
Please note that flight calls are not made at Guernsey Airport, so please watch the screens closely.
