Top 10 airport tips to travel like a pro


Heading off on your well-deserved holiday? Read our insider tips for a smooth and hassle-free travel experience!

1. Check in online and get to the airport early
We advise getting to the airport a couple of hours in advance, so you can check in, drop off your bags then relax and enjoy the airport experience.

2. Download your boarding pass to your phone using our Jet2 app!

3. Bring a portable charger with you

Make sure your phone doesn’t run out of battery, so you’ve always got those important documents on the app to hand! Remember, this must be kept in your hand luggage in the cabin and never in the aircraft hold!

4. Drop off your luggage the night before

Save yourself the hassle and queues the morning of your flight by using our free Twilight Check In service. It’s open between 3pm and 8pm the evening before your flight – just make sure you’ve checked in online first!

5. Keep your valuables and important items within easy reach

Remember to keep your phone, passport, money and any other important items like medication with you at all times.

6. Simplify your airport outfit

Try to keep jewellery and accessories to a minimum – the less you wear, the less you may be asked to remove at security.

7. Roll your clothes to save some space

We recommend taking full advantage of our generous 22kg hold luggage, but if you’re only travelling with hand luggage, this hack will save you lots of room and help you squeeze in even more.

8. Weigh up the cost of an airport lounge

Research what lounges your airport of choice has to offer. Most lounges let you spend up to three hours enjoying all the facilities, so you can really kick back, relax and start your holiday in style.

9. Pre-book the perfect seats

Do you need extra leg room? Like to always have the window view? Booking your seats in advance means you won’t be disappointed when you get onboard.

10. Make sure you prepare for security

Use the check-in area prior to the security gates and have your liquids bag ready, remove any jewellery and belts as well as large electricals. The sooner you can breeze through security, the sooner you can get that holiday feeling!
