Airline passengers are being told by airport staff to check in early in order to avoid length queues.
Although the peak times of Christmas and New Year have passed, many travellers are taking winter sun breaks to popular destinations such as Turkey and therefore airline traffic remains high. In addition, holidaymakers are also being urged to make sure they arrive in good time for their flight as baggage restrictions are still causing delays at check-in desks.
A spokesperson for BAA Stansted is advising all passengers to double-check current airport baggage restrictions before they leave home and make sure they have correctly packaged their baggage and hand luggage.
Mel Nice, spokesperson at BAA Stansted Airport, said: "We want to ask passengers to allow time for their journey to get to the airport. They should arrive at the airport at least two hours before their flight."
"One piece of hand luggage only is to go through security and liquids taken in hand luggage must be in individual containers with a maximum volume of 100 millilitres to comply with the directions of the Department for Transport."
