Check-in is on the left as you come in through the main terminal entrance. Your airline will tell you how early you need to be there; the airports general advice is two hours before international flights and 90 minutes before flights within the UK and Ireland.
Some airlines allow you to check in online (in some cases only if you have no hold luggage). This means you can go straight to security once you get to the airport after dropping any hold luggage off at the bag drop. Airlines that allow online check-in at Aberdeen include Virgin Atlantic, British Airways, easyJet, Flybe, bmi regional, Air France, Aer Lingus, Lufthansa, KLM, SAS and Wideroe. There are also self-check-in kiosks that you can use if youre flying with British Airways, Flybe, bmi regional, Air France, KLM and SAS.
Your airline will be able to tell you your hand and hold luggage allowance. Some airlines do now allow more than one piece of hand baggage.
Liquids, pastes and gels can only be carried in your hand luggage if they are in containers of 100ml or less; otherwise you must pack them in your hold luggage. Liquids in your hand luggage must be taken out and carried through security in a clear, resealable 20cm x 20cm plastic bag. Baby food, baby milk and medicine you will need during the flight are exempt from the 100ml rule, but you will need to get approval from your airline and the airport for the medicine beforehand, so bring your prescription or a letter from your doctor. Its also worth knowing that you can buy formula milk from Boots in the departure lounge after security.
