easyJet, the UK’s largest and best value airline, has launched a new night check-in service at Gatwick airport which enables passengers to check-in the night before departure.
The airline has launched the service after an independent survey of 1,000 passengers revealed that a staggering 31% have missed an early morning flight. Almost half of respondents declared that early morning check-in made them anxious, with one in four passengers getting less than three hours sleep as they’re so afraid they’ll miss their flight!
Paul Simmons, easyJet’s UK general manager, comments: “Holiday’s are meant to be a chance to get away, relax and unwind. easyJet’s priority is ensuring that passengers start their holiday as they want to continue.
“By introducing the night check-in service we aim to take the stress out of early morning flying by ensuring passengers can fly straight through to the departure gate.”
The night check-in service means passengers can check in their hold baggage and collect their boarding passes so that in the morning they can head straight to the departure lounge. The service is available to passengers on flights from Gatwick airport departing before 8.30am and will allow passengers to check-in from 8pm the night before departure.
easyJet is testing the service with the view to potentially rolling it out to further airport bases across the UK.
