How early to arrive at Bournemouth airport?

For departures from Bournemouth airport, we suggest arriving for check-in at least 2 hours before your flight’s departure time. When taking a shuttle from your Bournemouth airport parking operator, it is recommended that you allow for extra travel time in case of delays. 

 Park and Ride

The Park and Ride service option means you will park your vehicle at an offsite car park. It includes free shuttle transfers to and from Bournemouth Airport, which will take no more than 20 minutes. As you search and compare Park and Ride packages, you can find transfer times and extra information on the parking listing page.

 Meet and Greet

When booking Meet and Greet, you will drive directly to the airport terminal. One of the employees of the car park will be there waiting for you. Once you arrive, they will inspect your car and drive it to the parking lot to park for you. Upon your return, they will bring it back to the same meeting point. This service saves you time, allowing you to go straight to check-in and have a relaxing experience.

International Flight

For international travel, we recommend arriving for check-in a minimum of 3 hours before the scheduled departure time. Check-in and security can sometimes take longer for international travel. By arriving with plenty of time, you won’t have to stress about being late for your flight, no matter which parking option you book.
