No Blue Queues At Kennedy

15th May 2001

New York`s JetBlue Airways has implemented a wireless curb-side check-in system to “bust lines” during busy travel periods.
The mobile check-in solution, the first of its kind in the U.S. and co-developed by Datavision-Prologix and Barcode Products Pty, allows designated JetBlue staff to check-in passengers, print boarding passes and check luggage virtually anywhere inside or outside the terminal. Currently, the wireless check-in service is only available at JetBlue`s base in Terminal 6 at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, but the airline plans to roll it out to all its other city operations shortly. The handheld system, which consists of a wireless local area RF network, portable data terminals and portable receipt/ticket printer, also allows JetBlue staff to access passenger and flight information via a wireless real-time connection to the HP Open Skies reservation system.
