Check-in times

You’ll find information about the recommended check-in times for Belgium here.

General Information

In the airport, pay attention to the check-in closure time and your boarding time. Those who arrive too late risk losing their right to board if the worst comes to the worst. Plan in enough time for check-in, security checks and baggage checks so that you can fly relaxed. You’ll find the recommended check-in times for Belgium in the tables below.

When collecting travel documents, at the beginning of a holiday period or for a special check-in (groups, bulky baggage, etc.), we advise you to plan in an extra 30 minutes.

Please note: Remember that you need up to 45 minutes from check-in to your gate – and that you must be at the gate no later than 45 minutes before the scheduled departure time.
