I'll be having an early morning flight (6am) from Porto airport (OPO) with Lufthansa.

Will I be able to drop my luggage (assume I checked in online) the night before?

    Many international hub airports have "twilight" or "night before" luggage drop, but it's not common for smaller airports. Can't find any info on OPO

    The last LH flight appears to leave at 16:40 and that may not be a daily flight. It's possible that you could get there and find the check-in counter closed, even if they would otherwise be willing to accept the bags early. Jun 3 '16 at 16:27

"We are not offering a late night check in in Porto, please bring your luggage in the morning. /Nina"

So no, you need to get rid of your luggage on the morning of your flight.


For Lufthansa in general, the website http://www.lufthansa.com/de/en/Check-in-Information allows you to select the airport you are flying from to get information about check-in possibilities. If late night check-in is possible, it is mentioned under "On-airport services". For Porto, it is not available (I double checked by selecting Frankfurt, where I know it is available, and it showed up)
