As most of our flights from the Caribbean leave in the evening, we offer a check in and chill out service – leaving you longer to loll on your lounger.
When to arrive for your flight
We recommend you get to the airport with plenty of time to spare – it’s a good way to avoid last-minute stress! As a rule of thumb:
- Virgin Atlantic flights: arrive at the airport at least two hours before your flight is due to leave.
- Partner airline flights: we recommend you check in three hours before your scheduled departure.
Check in options
You can check in for your flight and pick up your boarding pass using any one of the following options.
You’ll find our regular counter check in service on the ground floor of Terminal 1. Our friendly staff will send you on your way with a smile just as quickly as they can.
The best way to check in is online. You can pick your seat and print your boarding card.
Just go to Manage your flights.
If you’re travelling with carry on baggage only, you can print off your own boarding pass and we’ll see you at the gate.
You can use our mobile site to check in wherever you are, anytime between 24 and 2 hours before your flight leaves.
