When you are about to travel internationally, not having enough time can be stressful. Making sure you enough time to make it through airport security and checking-in is especially important.
Why is it important to be to the airport 3 hours before an international flight?
This is a question a lot of people ask, even if they’ve travelled internationally before. The time can vary depending on the airline you’re travelling with. Some airlines will say you only need 2 hours, while others go with the more common 3 hours. And most airlines will want you to be at the departure gate a minimum of 30 minutes before boarding the plane.
Then you have to factor in the amount of time it might take you and your group to get through security, or check your bags. Did you check-in online or will you need to at the airport? Checking-in at home will eliminate waiting in long lines at the airport. In many cases you can get your boarding pass electronically on your phone.
Each airline will have it’s own recommendations as to how much time they think you’ll need. It can also depend on the time of day, peak travel hours make this process a lot longer and time consuming. With all of that in mind, you can make sure you’re at the airport on time and you won’t be in a stressful rush to make it to your plane.
