EasyJet will close all its airport check-in desks and replace them with bag-drop desks, for those fliers wishing to travel with checked luggage, from April 30.
This is an attempt to encourage more passengers to check in online.
Passengers who forget to check in online will still be able to do so at the airport free of charge, but it is hoped the facility will only be used in “exceptional circumstances.”EasyJet passengers can check in online up to 30 days before they fly. They are currently permitted to travel with one piece on hand luggage, no bigger than 56 x 45 x 25cm. It charges customers £25 to travel with a single piece of hold baggage.
