Flying Tips & TricksHow do I find my flight number?
  • Your itinerary contains essential information for your forthcoming trip, including your flight number. Not sure what it looks like? There's an IATA airline code at the start, which is typically one to two letters and a single digit. Following that are a few other numerals — your flight number.
How early can you check bags for a flight?
  • Airlines can have varying requirements when it comes to physical check-in and baggage drop times. However, as a general rule of thumb, aim to arrive at the terminal about three hours before departure for an international flight. If you're traveling on a domestic flight, the recommended time is two hours before departure. Our top tip? Get there on time. International flights tend to close baggage drop an hour before departure. With domestic flights, it's 45 minutes before.
