Cathay Pacific Airways have launched the world`s first comprehensive Online Check-In service allowing passengers to check in for flights via the Internet before heading to the airport.
Although some airlines already offer limited Internet check-in services, Cathay Pacific is the world`s first airline to offer the general public an online check-in service on almost all outbound and inbound international routes.
The facility is initially available for all Asia Miles and Marco Polo Club members and their travelling companions.
The Online Check-In service can be used up to 90 minutes before flight departure, and boarding passes must be collected at least 60 minutes before departure. Passengers can also check-in luggage when collecting the boarding pass.
Online Check-In is just part of the suite of new services costing the airline $250 million this year.
