Departing? Follow these steps when checking your bike in

1. Firstly you should check with your airline for any restrictions (different airlines have different rules). Some like the tyres deflated, some like the pedals detached, some don't...

2. When you arrive at the airport make sure your bike is packed as per your airline's instructions, with nothing else in the box.

3. Then go to the 'oversized baggage' area to the east of the check-in hall, near zones C and D. This is clearly signposted.

4. Once you've checked everything in head upstairs to security and enjoy your journey.

Please note, some airlines operate a Twilight Bag Drop service at Edinburgh Airport. If you have a morning flight with with Ryanair, easyJet, Jet2 or British Airways you may be able to check your baggage in the night before.
