Many low cost or budget carriers run a strict check in system at all of their departure points. What that means is that if you arrive at the check in counter outside of their designated time schedule, they may deny you travel. This refusal can be even if the flight is still a long way from departing.
Check in times can vary depending on the type of flight you are taking. It is important to check the conditions of your ticket a few days before your scheduled departure. And if you want to ensure you can catch your flight, make sure you are at check in well before the advised time.
