EasyJet passengers arriving at the security check with less than half an hour before their flight leaves will not be allowed to board.

The new policy, which is similar to that of BA at Heathrow Terminals three and five, will please all those who always allow plenty of time for the irritating but essential security checks but annoy those types who like to cut it fine with just hand luggage to carry on and who are often to be seen jumping the queues to make their flights. These passengers can pay EasyJet an extra £7.50 “missed flight cover” and then be entitled to a full refund, or a booking on the next available flight, without paying the normal £80 for switching flights.
