Many airlines, including easyJet and Ryanair, allow online check-in. This means that when you get to the airport, all you need to do is drop any hold baggage at the bag drop before heading straight to security.
The maximum size for hand luggage is 56cm x 45cm x 25cm, but you should check with your airline in case they have stricter rules. Most airlines, including easyJet, Ryanair, Flybe and Wizz Air, only allow one item of hand luggage, although pushchairs and walking aids are allowed on top of that. Laptops and other large electrical items (like large hairdryers, for example) must be taken out of your bag at security and screened separately. A separate laptop bag would count as your one item of hand luggage. Remember, too, that youre not allowed any liquids, gels or pastes over 100ml in your hand luggage theyll need to go in your hold luggage. Liquids in your hand luggage must be taken through security in a transparent, resealable 20cm x 20cm plastic bag.
