How early should I arrive at the airport on the day of my flight?

We recommend arriving at the airport at least 2 hours before the departure of the flight so that you have enough time to check in, drop off your baggage, go through the passport (as appropriate) and security controls, and reach the boarding gate.
The flight cut-off time is the deadline for getting your boarding pass and checking in your baggage.

The cut-off time for our flights is usually 45 minutes before the scheduled time of departure for check-in and 20 minutes for boarding.
For security reasons, this cut-off time may be longer at certain airports in our network or depending on the destination.

Checking-in baggage:
At Madrid airport you can check in your baggage up to 24 hours in advance of the departure of your flight.
For all other flights, check-in opens as follows:

  • Long-haul: 4 hours before the scheduled time of departure.

  • Short and medium-haul: 2 hours before the scheduled time of departure.
