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.
