Please ensure you check your flight time and check-in time requirements with your airline as these can vary depending on the airline or if your flight is scheduled or chartered. Check-in desks usually open two hours before the scheduled time of departure, but it can be less for inter-island flights.

Check the weight restrictions on your luggage as you could pay extra charges if you are over the allowed maximum weight limit. You should also check the size and number of pieces of hand luggage you are allowed to take on board with you.

Many airlines flying from Jersey only allow one item of hand luggage on board; a handbag or laptop for example may count as one item and you may be asked to place it in the hold at an additional cost to you.
