In general, allowing 90 minutes before your flight is usually sufficient to arrive at the airport, check your bags, and go through the security process. However, it's important to stay updated with any notifications the airport may post on their website and Facebook page. During busy periods like holidays, they sometimes advise allowing at least 2 hours to account for potential delays.

Additionally, it's worth noting that parking lots at the airport can fill up quickly. To ensure a spot, it's recommended to pre-book with an off-airport operator since the on-airport lots cannot be reserved. This way, you can secure your parking arrangements in advance and have a smoother experience upon arrival at the airport.
