CHECKING IN
Please refer to your travel documents for flight details and ensure that you arrive at the airport well before the latest check-in time shown on your itinerary. Our flights to Egypt are operated by Monarch Airlines from Gatwick South Terminal and from Manchester, Terminal 1. The airline operates a ‘common check-in’ procedure which will allow you to check-in at any of their desks.

BOARDING
Please ensure that you arrive at the boarding gate at least 30 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time. Many airports no longer announce flight departures over the public address system so it is vital that you check the flight information screens for the boarding time and gate number.

FLIGHT TIMES
The flight departure times shown on your itinerary are local times based on the 24 hour clock. Generally these times are adhered to but occasionally flights may be delayed for reasons beyond our control. When this is the case we will do our best to keep you informed and provide assistance wherever possible. Make sure that, if you have arranged either connecting flights or public transport to get you to and from the airport, you have allocated sufficient time to allow for any unforeseeable delays at check-in or baggage reclaim.

If you are being met at the airport on your return we recommend that you give full flight details to your friends/relatives and suggest that they contact the airport or check Ceefax page 440 for flight arrival information so as to avoid a wait if your flight is delayed. Flight arrival and departure information for Gatwick can also be found on: www.gatwickairport.com and www.manchesterairport.co.uk respectively.
