Beat the queues at Gatwick South with Virgin Atlantic

Virgin atlantic check-in

Passengers can check in for a Virgin Atlantic flight the night before departure, from 12pm to 9pm, to avoid the early morning check-in queues.

Points to note:

  • All members of the party travelling should go to the Twilight check-in.
  • The Virgin twilight check-in desk is based at the South Terminal of London Gatwick airport.
  • Bring your tickets, passports and luggage.
  • Passengers will be asked the standard security questions and will need to leave a local contact telephone number where you are staying over night - take your hotel telephone number with you.
  • For those who need to check in an additional item of baggage on the day of departure, twilight check-in is not for you.
  • Passengers who are collecting tickets on departure cannot take advantage of the Twilight check-in service.

Once checked in at Twilight check-in, there is no need to return to the check-in area. On arrival at Gatwick the following day go straight through to the departure lounge, with your boarding cards.

Virgin Airlines advise passengers to be at the airport a minimum of two hours before departure and to be at the departure gate no later than 50 minutes prior to flight departure .

There is no Virgin Twilight check-in at Heathrow airport.

The benefits are obvious for travellers who live locally and for those who plan to stay at a Gatwick airport hotel. Check out our prices for Gatwick airport hotel bookings and save yourself some money - we offer some very good prices at Gatwick.
