Please do not pack any valuables, perishable items, keys, travel documents or medicine in your checked baggage. These items must be packed in your hand luggage.

Scheduled flights from the United Kingdom and Ireland

Check-in

Please be at the airport for check-in at least 2 hrs before departure for your international flights. At large busy airports like Manchester, London Gatwick or Heathrow we recommend you arrive at the check-in at least 2,5 hrs before departure. Internet and/or self-service kiosk check-in may be available depending on which airline you are travelling with.

Your flight tickets are electronic; you may check in by showing your passport to the agent at the check-in counter. Please retain the baggage tag issued at check-in until after you have collected your luggage.

Some code-share flights are operated by a different carrier than the one shown on your itinerary. You may find more information on the website of your booked airline, where you may access your booking and print a copy of your e-ticket by entering your name and booking reference.

Baggage through check-in

If you have a connecting flight from the UK to Norway with an onward flight to another destination in Norway, you can take your hand luggage directly to the gate mentioned on your boarding pass. Due to possible gate changes, please double-check your departure times at the transfer desk or check

announcements and arrival/departure board at the airport. Your checked luggage will be checked through to your final destination. If you are holding separate tickets on different airlines it is usually not possible to check baggage through. Check-in staff will advise you whether baggage may be checked or not.

  • Duty-free articles purchased at the airport or on board flights are exempt from this rule. Make sure you show the boarding pass of your connecting flight when buying liquids at your first departure airport so that the checkout staff will place your purchase in a special sealed bag that will be accepted at the security check of your next airport.

  • No sharp or pointed objects are allowed in your hand luggage. If you are taking needles for medical reasons you need to bring a doctor’s certificate with you to show at the security check at the airport.
