China Southern adds e-boarding

China Southern Airlines is enabling passengers to select their seat and print out their boarding pass on the airline’s Chinese web site at
Passengers may now complete their check-in procedure at home or in the office - wherever you have Internet access. You can select your seat in any part of the cabin of service you have selected, First, Business or Economy. Once you have selected your seat just print out your boarding pass and then go directly to the airport.

Passengers originating from Guangzhou with an E-ticket will be able to enjoy this convenient service…all that is needed is a computer with Internet access and a printer. Instead of waiting online in the terminal for your boarding pass, you can easily complete your check in procedure on the China Southern Airlines’ Chinese website at .

China Southern has test marketed its E-Boarding system for months - and since this system is brand new - the airline is temporarily rolling it out first to its China Southern Pearl Club members who purchase tickets via the Internet and on flights from Guangzhou to Beijing, Changsha, Shanghai and Wuhan (specifically CZ3101; CZ3103; CZ3109; CZ3503; CZ3523; CZ3376 and CZ3350). After a period of time for additional real-time testing, this system will apply to all flights originating from Guangzhou - and afterwards to all worldwide China Southern flights.

Early in July, Mr. Wu Yong Ming, General Manager of China Unicom Guangdong Branch became the first to use E-check in service in Chinese Civil Aviation history. In a ceremony to honor the event, China Southern demonstrated the procedure of E-check in service via the Internet, it only took less than two minutes for Mr. Wu to login and print out his boarding pass.

China Southern has been building its service upon reliable, on time and convenient air transportation while consistently promoting service innovations.
