British Airways to make e-ticket the standard in the Caribbean

The e-ticket, a paperless ticket that can be booked online, via your travel agent or over the phone, will become the standard ticket format with British Airways in the Caribbean from 01 December 2004.
Essentially it means that all details of your flight booking are held electronically by British Airways, making flight ticketing more straightforward, flexible and secure.

How e-ticket works:

Book your flight as normal online, through your travel agent or alternatively over the phone.

* You will then either be emailed or posted your e-ticket travel itinerary

* Check in online on or at the airport and remember to bring your e-ticket itinerary along with your passport to the airport to travel.


Because some countries’ airport infrastructures are still being adjusted, a selection of routes will still use paper tickets after 01 December 2004. Fully open tickets, group bookings and flights which include other carriers (except oneworld partners American Airlines, Qantas, Finnair, Aer Lingus, LAN Chile and Iberia who already do have an e-ticket interline agreement with BA) may also require paper tickets. British Airways aims for these to be e-ticketable by the end of 2004.
