Check-in desks open approximately 2-3 hours prior to departure and we recommend you check-in at least 2 hours before. Each passenger must check-in their own luggage as this is an important security check. You will need to produce your e-tickets and passports (e-tickets are checked against passports) and have your baggage weighed. Most airports no longer call out flight boarding details so you must watch the indicator board and individual TV monitors. Inghams cannot accept any responsibility for passengers who miss flights if they fail to check-in at the specified time shown on flight tickets.
Online check-in is now available on some of our scheduled flights to Europe and North America. We will provide you with an airline locator with your e-tickets approximately 2 weeks before you travel. You will then be able to access your booking via your airline's website 24 hours before departure and pre-book your seats or check-in online.
Online check-in is also not available with any of our charter airlines or low cost carriers. Where seats have been pre-booked on our charter services, exact seat numbers will be provided to you at check-in.
Due to weight and volume restrictions, our airline partners impose the following baggage allowances per person.
Normally 15-20kg per person (excluding infants) but varies by airline. Your allowance will be shown on your e-ticket.
Carriage of one piece of baggage will automatically be reserved for you.
1 piece per person weighing up to 20kg (23kg on British Airways).
BA Club Europe & World Traveller Plus and Club World have an allowance of 2 pieces per person.
All airlines (including charter carriers) now strictly enforce these limits and will charge for excess baggage, either per kilo or by extra piece. Please check the airlines' websites for the most up-to-date information regarding baggage allowances.
Please note: All baggage restrictions are implemented and enforced by the airline - Inghams does not charge (or receive any revenue) for excess baggage.
Passengers (excluding infants) are allowed to carry ONE piece of cabin baggage on board free of charge. Handbag, briefcase, laptops, etc must be carried within your permitted 1 piece of cabin baggage. It should weigh no more than 5kg and not exceed the maximum dimensions of 55cm x 40cm x 20cm. As a guide, your carry-on bag must be able to fit either underneath the seat or in the overhead compartment.
Due to ongoing security restrictions, only liquids in containers of 100mls or less will be permitted through the passenger security screening points. Liquid items must be carried in a transparent re-sealable bag (about the size of a small freezer bag).
To ensure your party sits together, you can pre-book seats on the following airlines: Monarch and Thomson Airways. Simply reserve your seats at the time of booking or up to 12 days before departure for a small charge of £9 per person return to Europe. Please note that seats may be separated by an aisle due to aircraft configurations. Exact seat numbers are given at check-in. Should we cancel or change your airline to one that is not part of this scheme, we will of course issue a full refund.
Pre-book your seats* with Austrian Airlines up to 48 hours before departure at www.laudaair.com/en/services/seat-reservation-info. Your contract for this service is between you and Austrian Airlines, not Inghams.
*Austrian charge for this service and any issues must be directed to them.
Essential medicines and medical equipment, eg hypodermic needles required for your holiday may be permitted onboard in larger quantities above the 100ml limit. Passengers must have a note from their GP supporting this.
Please check your flight tickets for full details. Meals are served on all transatlantic services. On most short-haul services within Europe a "Buy on Board" service is now offered.
Liquid baby food or sterilised water, sufficient for the journey, can be taken through airport security. The accompanying adult may be required to verify by tasting.
Fuel surcharges were introduced on 1st April, 2011 for new bookings made for Lakes & Mountains and Ski holidays. The fuel surcharges are as follow:
|Flight Distance||Fuel Surcharge Amount|
|Short Haul (incl. Finland)||£15|
|Long Haul (North America)||£40|
Flight supplements may apply on certain dates and routes. You will be advised of the actual price at the time of booking.
Most scheduled airlines have several different 'booking classes' for the same seat. Depending on such factors as aircraft size, day/time of departure, a variable number of seats will be available in each booking class. Airlines operate sophisticated yield management systems and are constantly updating availability and prices. Our reservations system checks for the most up-to-date position. You may therefore be offered different supplements at different times. If you book early you have the best chance of obtaining the lowest price economy class seat.
If you're flying, you can upgrade to Club Class on our British Airways flights to many European and Canadian destinations, which ensures a greater luggage allowance, more legroom and dedicated check-in desks to avoid the airport queues.
Add a touch of luxury to your holiday by upgrading to Club Europe or Business Class on British Airways and Swiss scheduled flights. This upgrade offers:
All supplements are in addition to the return flight rate and supplements shown in the Travel Information pages.

The UK Government requires airlines to collect API for passengers on routes to and from the UK. Airlines will only provide each country's authorities with the relevant information required by them. However, some governments also require airlines to provide them with Passenger Name Records (PNR). Governments of some other countries also require API.
For most countries, API is restricted to the standard information contained in the Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) in machine-readable passports which can be scanned or swiped at airport check-in and transmitted to the country concerned at the time the aircraft departs. However, some countries are now requiring additional information from passengers that isn't contained in passports, or they are requiring it earlier or both, e.g. the USA. The USA has implemented Secure Flight for all flights to, and from within the USA. Accordingly, airlines must provide advance passenger information 72 hours before departure. Additionally, airlines must provide details of your country of residence and destination address in the USA. We are legally required to collect your advance passenger information. You will receive further information before your departure when and how we need to collect your details. If you are travelling into or via the USA, you must obtain ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorisation) ideally 7 days before travel. Information and apply at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/. An ESTA fee is payable – currently £14 per person.
