How early should I arrive at the airport?
How early should I arrive at the airport?
Updated over a week ago

Most airlines advise their passengers to arrive at the airport:

  • 2 hours before a domestic departure, or

  • 3 hours before if travelling internationally.

Though, many frequent travelers find it takes more or less time in their experience. Some people are comfortable cutting it close, while many prefer to play it safe.

We are happy to offer a recommendation, but the time you select will ultimately depend on your specific circumstances.

Things to consider:

  • Have you checked in already?

  • Do you have any bags to check?

  • Is it a smaller regional airport, or a bigger international hub?

  • Is it a peak travel time (holidays, summer, school break etc.)?

Blacklane's routes & ETA are calculated using Google Maps, so it's easiest to refer to their system when selecting the pickup time for your chauffeur service.
