The fastest ticket on Earth

10th Dec 1998

Concorde passengers will now be able to check in at supersonic speed with the introduction of the fastest ticket on earth.

This latest electronic ticket (E-ticket) will reduce check-in time for the twice daily New York flights to less than one minute.

Added to a flying time of just three and a half hours , it makes reaching the Big Apple even faster.

Kieron Gavan, British Airways Head of Global Distribution, said: ” For Concorde passengers, time is money so the introduction of E- ticket has real money saving potential as well as allowing them more hours at home rather than the airport.”

E-ticket works by enabling all Concorde passengers with either hold baggage or hand baggage to make a booking by phone and then travel to the airport to check-in at self-service machines using their credit card or Executive Club card.


They can even select their favourite Concorde seat using the machine’s touch screen technology. They will then be issued with a boarding card.

And for the captains of industry, movie stars and serious shoppers just planning a day trip they can also check-in for their return sector.
