Be on time for flights, airport urges passengers

People arriving late at Terrace airport risk being left behind.

A Northwest Regional Airport official is warning passengers they need to be checked in by the time indicated by their carrier.

With WestJet now flying out of Terrace, more flights are taking off within a few minutes of each other and that means more passengers who need to be checked in and passed through security at the same time.

So those who are late checking in or going through security risk not getting on their intended flight, says airport manager Carman Hendry.

“There are times now when we have three aircraft on the apron,” said Hendry of service to Vancouver offered by WestJet, Air Canada Jazz and Hawkair.

“Being checked in means being checked in, not standing in the line up,” noted Hendry.

He’s had several reports of people arriving after their check in time and then not being able to board their flight.

Generally speaking, passengers have to be checked in 45 minutes before their flight and be through security 30 minutes before departure time.

Hendry said people traveling from out of town to catch a flight should build in allowances for any potential traffic or other delays.
