Don't Turn-Up Late To Your Easyjet Flight

We all know that we need to be early for flights.

Check-in, drop-off your luggage, go through security, raid Duty-Free…it’s all important.

But if you’re late, it delays everyone. To that end, Easyjet are cracking-down on tardy passengers.

If you endeavor to pass airport security less than 30 minutes before your flight, it’s likely you will be denied boarding and possibly charged a ‘rescue fee’ of £80.

The barriers at Gatwick airport are automatically timed to reject those late boarders, so the option to sprint the length of the airport to board your plane will soon be a thing of the past.

If you've experienced a mad-dash to the gate, let us know.
