Forty extra baggage staff are being drafted in at Gatwick Airport to prevent any repeat of the chaos they experienced last weekend.
Staff shortages meant baggage-handling company Swissport was unable to cope with a succession of off-schedule arrivals late last Saturday night.
Arriving travellers were told to go home without their bags or face long delays.
But Swissport, who has apologised for the problems, said it had drafted in 40 extra staff to cope with demand this weekend, which is expected to be one of the airport's busiest.
Gatwick management is also laying on staff to assist with the baggage operation.
They stressed last week's problems only affected incoming flights and said they were expecting a "smooth weekend."
