Travel Extra’s Sunday Supplement: Easyjet close check-in desks

Nearly four years after Ryanair closed its check-in desks in 2009, Easyjet followed suit this week. All Easyjet desks will be replaced by bag-drop desks from April 30 but the airline says it has n plans charge passengers a fee if they forget to check in online, or charge to print boarding passes, but Easyjet hopes the facility will only be used in “exceptional circumstances.”

Ryanair recently increased the fee for printing a boarding pass at the airport from €50 to €70, but have reduced the time-limit in advance of the flight from four to two hours. This opens up the option of passengers who do not have a working printer checking in online and then using the airport printing facilities provided by Irish company Surfbox in many European airports to avoid the charge.
