When to Arrive

When to Arrive Each airline at YQQ has a recommended check-in time that Customer Service Agents must adhere to. YQQ asks all passengers to familiarize themselves with these policies to avoid the disappointment of being turned away from a flight due to late arrival at the airport.

There are many reasons why these policies exist, even at a smaller Vancouver Island airport like YQQ. For example, when a passenger checks in late, it is not just a matter of the passengers themselves mak-ing it through security and onto the plane. The luggage must also be screened and loaded onto the air-craft, which can cause further delay. Waiting for even one passenger can sometimes mean the loss of a landing slot at the destination airport. Whether you are flying from Vancouver Island to the Lower Main-land or to a vacation destination, checking in early ensures you won't be disappointed with a missed flight.
