Ar­rive early for flights

Air­port re­minds pas­sen­gers to ar­rive 90 min­utes be­fore de­par­tures

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE PROVINCE -

The Char­lot­te­town Air­port Au­thor­ity wants to re­mind all pas­sen­gers to al­low ex­tra time at the air­port for early morn­ing and early evening de­par­tures dur­ing this peak travel sea­son.

The peak sum­mer travel sched­ule has started and the air­lines have ad­di­tional flights and larger air­craft for this pe­riod.

This is re­sult­ing in longer than nor­mal wait times for air­line check-in and se­cu­rity.

“We would like the public to be pre­pared when fly­ing from our air­port this sum­mer, as over half of our air­port’s traf­fic is dur­ing the sum­mer months,” said Char­lot­te­town air­port CEO Doug Newson, not­ing the busiest times are in the early morn­ings be­tween 5 a.m. and 7 a.m.

“We are ask­ing all trav­ellers to ar­rive at the air­port 90 min­utes be­fore their sched­uled flight as the air­lines rec­om­mend, es­pe­cially dur­ing this busy time.”

Cur­rently, the ma­jor­ity of pas­sen­gers have been ar­riv­ing at the Char­lot­te­town air­port 60 min­utes prior to their de­par­ture, which is not enough time for the check-in process dur­ing this peak pe­riod.

Air­lines are also re­mind­ing pas­sen­gers there is a 45-minute cut off for check-in prior to the sched­uled de­par­ture time.
