Welcome to Thomas Cook Support

We're here to help

Will I need to check in earlier at my Egyptian destination airport?

If you're travelling back to the UK from an Egyptian airport on a Thomas Cook Airlines’ flight, we encourage you to minimise or even check in all of your carry-on luggage.  This will help minimise delays at the gate at your inbound departure airport.

You will still be allowed these items through the normal security channels, however it is at the boarding gate that these extra checks will take place and you will not be allowed to take the restricted items into the aircraft cabin.  At this point these items will be removed and put into the hold and will be returned to you in the baggage hall on arrival into the UK.

To allow for the longer time that may be needed for the extra security checks, airport transfers will leave an hour earlier than usual on your return.

If you are unsure whether you can carry any other device, please check with our Thomas Cook representative or Airport check-in agent.
