Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, the UK’s travel and Holiday Company, has launched its free Twilight Check-In service at Birmingham Airport.
The Twilight Check-In free service was introduced in May 2015, and is now being expanded to Birmingham Airport. It is aimed at customers staying at a hotel or who live near the airport as it saves time the morning of the flight.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: ‘Jet2.com and Jet2holidays prides itself on giving customers a unique VIP experience from the very start of their holidays. Our Twilight Check-In is a smart and secure service and really adds to our customers overall holiday experience. We are delighted to be expanding it to Birmingham Airport, meaning customers can start their holiday with us luggage-free and breeze through the airport to catch their flight.’
The customers would need to check in online at least 24 hours before their flight, for flights departing before 12 noon the following day. They can then visit the Twilight check-in where they can drop their bags at the Jet2.com check-in desks between 3pm and 8pm the day before.
They can then arrive at the airport the following morning and head straight to security, bypassing check-in, giving them more time free before catching their Jet2.com flight.
The move comes as Birmingham Airport handled almost 12.5 million passengers in 2018 and welcomed additional routes and airlines to its existing offering. The additional routes introduced in 2018, include: Amritsar, Agadir, Langkawi, Bodrum, Marsa Alam and Montenegro, in addition to more frequency to Belfast, Geneva and Antalya.
In November 2018, the Airport announced a self-financed investment of GBP500 million to improve, modernise and extend facilities, delivering increased passenger capacity as well as enhancing the passenger experience.
