Due to the increased volume over June, July, August and September, passengers travelling in the early morning are once again advised to arrive 2 hours prior to their departure time to ensure that they have a seamless travel experience. The airport understands that this can be a big ask in the wee hours of the morning so they have developed a to-do list for passengers to pass the time.
