I have a flight leaving at 5:50 on a Monday morning. Anyone know how long it will take to check in and go through security at that hour? Thanks!

if you arrive late, the check in will be too long.
if you arrive early, the check in will be too short.


No later than 4:00 am at arrivals. 4:30 at TSA.

I'm looking for someone who actually has knowledge of the Portland Airport.

Btdt 2x last week for 5:50AM flts

TSA pre and no bags.
One hr before and I still had 45 min to spare. (That can change...)
The lines were not bad, but some times they are at that hour. School is back in session, so travel is much better.

Give yourself an hour in the terminal, more if you have bags to check.

Thanks! We do have bags to check. Your info is very helpful.

Monday when? Monday after Thanksgiving can be a lot different than next Monday. I've flown out of PDX over 100 times. I've had no issues when checking in by 60 minutes before the flight except the Monday morning after Thanksgiving, then I should have done 90 minutes.

I'm guessing from your post that you aren't a frequent flyer. So I just want to clarify in case it's a term you aren't familiar with ... when the other poster said "TSA Pre" (aka "Pre Check), that means that he has been pre-approved to go through expedited security lines. I'm guessing you don't have PreCheck. Your security screening experience will be different (and likely longer) than his. Also remember that if the flight is at 5:50, they begin the boarding process around 5:20.
