If you have booked a specific time, we suggest arriving about 5-10 minutes before your scheduled flight, HOWEVER if there was no option for a specific time this means you have an open booking. Open bookings are your ticket to the flight you selected any time during our hours of operation. This keeps your times flexible and allows us to better cater to everyone’s needs.
