Online check-in now available for under 12s

Aurigny has changed its rules so families travelling with children under 12 can also take advantage of any benefits by checking in online before going to the airport.

The airline used to say that children always had to be checked in at the airport desk, in person, with the adult they were flying with.

That meant families with children under 12 had to wait to have their seats allocated while at the airport check-in desk before joining any queues to go through security.

Now, those families travelling with young children won't be disadvantaged as they can check-in online and if they're not taking any hold luggage they can go straight to security and the departure lounge without queueing at the desk.

If you're travelling with a child under two years old, who would sit on an adult's lap during the flight, you will still have to check-in at the airport desk to be allocated seats.

Aurigny says its Web Check-in service is available to passengers flying with or without hold luggage, but if you have got hold baggage you need to take it to the Aurigny Check-in desk, and show your Web boarding pass, no later than the minimum check-in/bag drop time at the airport you are flying from.

If you're travelling with just hand luggage you can go straight through security. 

While online check-in is available on most flights - you can't do it for flights to or from Alderney or Grenoble.

For those who can check in online, the service is usually open from 72 hours before departure times. 

On the busiest Aurigny routes, like to and from London Gatwick, the Web Check-in service closes one hour before the scheduled departure time, but for flights to and from the other UK airports it closes three hours before.
