Edinburgh Airport has extended its popular Twilight bag drop service, making it even easier passengers to check in their baggage the night before they fly

The airport is increasing the hours and days when the free-to-use Twilight service is available. Passengers with a car parking booking in official Edinburgh Airport car parks will also be able to access the 1Hr parking area for free the night before travel.

The trial of the free use of the 1Hr parking area for customers will be assessed throughout the summer. The trial will begin on May 1, 2024 and customers with existing bookings will be able to take advantage of the free area, while customers yet to make bookings will be informed of the free parking area in their confirmation emails.

The Twilight offering means passengers on early morning flights can come to the airport the night before to check in bags, heading straight to security on the day of travel. Four airlines currently offer the service: Ryanair, easyJet, Jet2 and British Airways.

Adam Wilson, chief operating officer at Edinburgh Airport, said: “The Twilight service was very popular last summer, so much so that it continued into the winter months, so we know there is demand and that passengers like to use it where possible.

“We’ve worked with airlines to extend days and hours of operation where possible, and we hope that will benefit passengers who have those early morning flights and want to head straight to security on the morning of their flight.”
