Norwegian air

Hi

If I check in online for Norwegian air will the bag drop be available during the afternoon if I am booked onto night flight?

Will probably depend on the airport and how many flights they have before yours but possibly not.

Bag drop and check in for the vast majority of Airlines is usually no earlier than 4 or 5 hours prior to departure. That’s pretty standard throughout the industry. For security reasons predominantly.

It can be more a matter of space for luggage rather than security. If you have a short haul flight then depending on the airport you may not be allowed to hand in checked luggage until two hours before flight departure time; for a long haul probably three hours.

Bags that are handed in long before departure are at risk of getting misplaced, depending on the airport. Airports with airlines that allow status pax to hand in bags at any time before flights should have operations in place to ensure that early checked baggage makes its way to the correct plane five or more hours in the future, but a smaller airport may not have the ability to guarantee this.

https:/… Depending on your airport of departure and other Norwegian flights on the day you travel the bag drop desk may not open more than two or three hours before departure time.
