Flying Tips & TricksHow do I find my flight number?
  • When you've finalized your booking, check your emails for your travel itinerary. Your flight number is in this document. You shouldn't have too much trouble finding it — just keep your eyes peeled for a code made up of letters and numbers. The first one to two letters and digit are called an IATA airline code and indicate the airline you're traveling with. Following this are a few other figures which make up your flight number.
How early can you check bags for a flight?
  • To have ample time to drop your luggage, clear security and customs and show up at the correct boarding gate, make your way to the airport three hours before an international flight. If you're traveling domestically, show up around two hours before. Even if you've already been allocated your seat and received your boarding pass online, it's worth bearing in mind that there are closing times for luggage check-in. It's one hour before departure for international flights, and 45 minutes if you're flying domestically. Of course, times can vary between airlines, so it's wise to check these details ahead of time.
