This means that when people arrive at the airport the next day, their luggage is already sorted.

Users of the twilight service have left positive reviews online, with one user describing the process as “pretty painless”.

“Yes, very easy. Free parking for 1 hour in front of the Travelodge entrance, then bring your bags to the Jet2 office and check in your bags painlessly and it takes 30 minutes.” they tweeted.

“Maybe a different story walking from the parking lot in the rain but worth avoiding the current queues.”

Another user described the service as a “lifesaver”.

Absolutely amazing service at LBA. The queue at security is long, but it was cleared within minutes,” they said.

“Thanks also to Jet2 for the twilight check-in. Life saver.”

The service will be a welcome boost for travelers as the country’s airports continue to struggle to cope with rising passenger numbers returning to pre-pandemic levels.

Passengers have taken to social media by the hundreds over the past few weeks to complain about queues outside the terminal.

LBA previously tweeted confirming the return.

“Good news – Twilight Check-in is back with Jet2.” said the tweet.

“This fantastic free service means you can drop off your luggage at the airport the day before you depart from Leeds Bradford Airport.”

According to Jet2, all travelers need to do is follow these simple steps:

Check in online – Check in online at least 24 hours before your flight.

Drop off your luggage at the airport – One person in your group can deposit up to six bags. Simply bring your luggage to the airport between 3pm and 8pm the day before your flight. Don’t forget your boarding passes and passports.

Head straight to safety – When it’s time to fly, skip check-in and go to security.

Good flight – Relax and enjoy your getaway.
