Jet2.com has introduced its Twilight check-in service to Edinburgh and Newcastle airports.

The service, included in the fare and on Jet2holidays packages, allows customers to drop their bags off between 3pm and 8pm the night before their flight when they check-in online at least 24 hours prior.

Twilight check-in, now available at seven of Jet2’s bases, is aimed at passengers with early morning flights staying at a nearby hotel or living near the airport.

Steve Heapy, chief executive of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “As we approach the peak summer season, this is yet another example of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays investing in a VIP experience for our customers.”

Heapy said the service “adds to the overall holiday experience” and means passengers can “start their holiday with us luggage-free and breeze through the airport to catch their flight.”

The service is also available from Birmingham, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford, London Stansted and Manchester airports.
