Passengers flying with easyJet from Edinburgh Airport will now be able to drop their bags the day before their flight.

The free Twilight Bag Drop service offers airline passengers on early morning flights the ability to come to the airport the night before to check in bags, meaning they can head straight to security on the day of travel.

Twilight Bag Drop will be available to all easyJet customers on flights departing before 1200, and bags can be dropped between 1600-2100 the day before the flight.

“We are always looking for ways to make travel even easier for our customers, so we are really pleased to be introducing our free Twilight Bag Drop service at Edinburgh.

“We know the service is already very popular with customers flying from London Gatwick, Bristol and Manchester and by introducing this in time for Easter, thousands of families set to fly with us on their holidays from Scotland can now benefit by dropping their bags with us at airport the night before, for a quicker and easier journey,” said Ali Gayward, easyJet's UK country manager.

easyJet is the second airline at Edinburgh Airport to offer this service, after Jet2.
