Singapore airlines - Sydney airport check in

Could anyone advise me how long we should check in prior to departure in economy class on Singapore airlines from Sydney airport.

We have checked in online and printed boarding passes, but have luggage to check in.

You should look at checking in around 2 hours before departure ... this is all clearly stated on their website.

It does not matter if you check in online, you still have to get printed boarding passes at the check in desks.

Thankyou. I have also been told 3 hours prior, just wanted to clarify from anyone who has travelled with SQ recently.

The counters will open 3 hours before departure ... you can check-in anytime after that, they will close 60 mins beforehand.

Planning to be there 3hrs before departure is the only responsible reply to your question.

I'm a belt and braces person when it comes to international flights.

Even though I've checked in online with SQ, I still like to be at the airport around about 3 hours in advance, and I'm travelling in business class. For economy, there are often long check in queues.

I also plan on 3 hours, that way is something happens on the way to the airport. I still have loads of time. I'd rather have an hour to kill in departures than be panicking I'm going to miss a long haul flight.

I agree 3 hours , not sure about the desks at SYD but always 'look out' for desks for those who have already checked-in online , surprising the number of passengers that still do not ( or do not look for those special counters - where they have them )

We were lucky enough to be travelling business class from Sydney with SQ this time. On Jan 2nd there was a very long queue for economy but almost none for those who had checked in online. We will be in economy next time so will check in online however we will not have had access to a printer so I'm not sure how that will work. The airline website is a bit short on information.

You can still check in online, because they reprint your boarding pass anyway at Sydney.

Hope you're Enjoying our fair city. Although very hot today!!

You do not need to print anything ... it's not Ryanair or Easyjet. They will do it at the check-in desks.
