My husband has caught a 6:30 flight to the the US. We stayed at the Novatel Arenas across from the airport and they provide a free shuttle at to the airport. He left the hotel around 4:30 and everything was up and running. I like later flights, so when he wants to leave this early, I'm, "See you, honey!"

When I said "everything" I meant what he needed to board his plane. Sorry if I misspoke. The line forms before security is open, and I would still get to the airport two hours before a flight, especially if you are checking your bags. Once you're past security, you will go through immigration (passport control), so I don't think I'd wait until 5 to get in line for security. Be happy if you have time to spare.

Nice is a very efficient airport, but for the first flights at any airport, passengers arrive at about the same time. That's when I know that there will be lines. On later flights, passenger arrival is a little more spread out.

I would not be at the airport 2 hours before for an early flight from Nice-

the security queue at 5am is short IME

Quite a few factors here:

Which airline(s) ?

Which class are you flying?

Can you check in online the day before and reserve your seats in advance, so all you need to do at the airport is a bag drop ?

Are you checking bags all the way through to the US too ?

For a single flight to Frankfurt, I would say that Selkie is correct that you don't need to check in 2 hours before, but if you have a connecting flight to the US, and need to check in at Nice airport, I would heed Troggs advice

Hope this helps
