Adam Wilson, Chief Operating Officer at Edinburgh Airport said:

“Extending the Twilight Bag Drop service to passengers using all four of our busiest airlines is something we’ve been working on to help make the journey through the airport as smooth and efficient as possible.

“By checking-in bags the night before, it means passengers will be able to head straight to security and into the departures lounge. We’re glad to see this work with our airlines come to fruition and we hope passengers will take the chance to start their holiday off in a bit more of a relaxed fashion.”
