Standardised check-in and bag drop closure times

British Airways has begun the process of standardising check-in and bag drop closure times at airports across our network. The new standardised time for UK domestic and short haul customers to check in and drop their bags is up to 45 minutes before departure. The new standardised time for long haul customers to check in and drop their bags is up to one hour before departure. Customers should check their timings before they travel to ensure that they arrive at the airport in good time. To find out their check-in time at the airport, customers can go to Manage My Booking, click on their flight number, then ‘check-in’ and then click on ‘other ways to check-in’.
