Previous day luggage check-in for morning flights is being extended by Jet2 and Jet2holidays.

The ‘Twilight’ check-in service is now available at Birmingham, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford and Stansted in addition to Manchester airport where the concept was introduced in 2015,

It enables holidaymakers to drop their bags off at the airport between 3pm and 8pm the day before their flight to help save time on the day of departure.

The service applies to flight departing before 12 noon the following day and is free of charge.

Passenger check in online at least 24 hours before their flight, then visit the Twilight check-in where they drop their bags at check-in desks the night before.

When they arrive at the airport the following morning they can go straight to security, bypassing check-in, giving more time before flying.

Jet2 and Jet2holidays CEO Steve Heapy said: “The Twilight check-in is a smart and secure service and really adds to our customers’ overall holiday experience.

“The popularity of this service at Manchester means we are delighted to be expanding it, meaning customers at five of our UK bases can start their holiday with us luggage-free and breeze through the airport to catch their flight.”
