Thomson Baggage Drop Gatwick on a Saturday

Just wondered what Baggage drop at Gatwick North is like on a Saturday morning?

If we arrive around 10am for a flight leaving at 2pm will we be able to drop bags?

Are queues normally horrendous?

Any help greatly appreciated :)

The bag drop opens at the same time as the check in desks, around 3 hours prior. No way to tell how busy it will be. It depends on how many people are doing the same thing as you, at the same time as you.

Bag drop can be just as long as an ordinary queue. It will all depend on how many people have checked in online.

Have a look at the number of departures for your airline on one or two earlier Saturdays, with departures between, say, noon and 3pm. So far as EasyJet and Thomson are concerned, there seem to be a lot more flights in the early morning than after noon. As Leyland said, even if there were no queue, you wouldn't be allowed, in theory, to drop your bag off until 11am.
