Passengers have been told to pack essential items in their hand luggage to prepare for the possibility of more baggage chaos at Gatwick.
A spokeswoman for travel organisation Abta said today: "We hope people can pass through Gatwick smoothly this weekend. But if people are concerned it would be a good idea for them to put essential items in their carry-on bags.
"Both Gatwick and Swissport are putting on extra people and we are confident this should help address the problem."
