How long before the flight should the deceased be delivered to the airline?

Most airlines insist on the deceased being delivered no later than 6 hours before the scheduled flight departure time.

For repatriations to Ireland Aer Lingus and British Midland usually accept Human Remains 4 hours before the flight.

Always check with the airline or your repatriation agent for individual cases.
