Tips to make your trip as smooth as possible


Before you travel:

  • Check in online or on our App before travelling to the airport. Online check in opens 48 hours before flights within Europe and 24 hours before transatlantic flights.
  • Use Evening before check in to drop off checked bags in advance (if you are flying from Dublin/Cork before 8am).
  • Check the latest travel requirements for your destination.
  • Complete VeriFLY if required to approve your travel documents before you arrive at the airport.


At the airport:

  • Arrive 2.5 hours before a short haul flight and 3.5 hours before a long haul flight, plus up to 1 hour for bag drop.
  • Customers with bags who have already checked in and have their boarding pass should make their way to our Express Bag Drop kiosks if available and avoid any check-in queues.
  • Prepare carry-on baggage for security screening. Separate out liquids, gels, and pastes into one single, clear one-litre plastic bag with each container no bigger than 100ml. Remove electronic devices from baggage and place in the tray, along with shoes, jackets, coins, and jewellery.
  • Arrive at the boarding gate on time. After passing through security, keep a close eye on the departures screens to find out your boarding gate and check the status of your flight.


On board:

  • Always carry valuables and medication on board with you.
  • If your departure or destination country requires face masks to be worn on public transport, then it will still be required on board the aircraft to and from those routes.
  • Please note we've moved exclusively to contactless payments for in-flight shopping.
