Automatic Check-in When Booking Online with Flybe

Automatic Check-in When Booking Online with Flybe

Flybe has become the first UK carrier to offer its passengers an automatic check-in option when booking online so that between 36 and 15 hours prior to departure, an electronic boarding pass will automatically be sent direct to their smart phone or e-mail.

The full product is being introduced initially at nine of Flybe’s largest airports –  Belfast City, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Exeter, Glasgow, Jersey, London Gatwick, Manchester and Southampton – with automated e-mail check-in only available from an additional 17 airports. This will be implemented for travel from Tuesday 11th December 2012 with plans being well advanced for further rollout across the wider network in the New Year.

“This is the next step in our commitment to ‘Make flying better’,” said Simon Lilley, Flybe’s Director of Marketing, “and we are delighted to have become the first airline in the UK to offer this slick time-saving benefit for our passengers. When you book your flight on our website and choose the automatic check-in option we automatically check you in and send your electronic boarding pass to you 36 -15 hours prior to departure – we do it all for you. Plus for those that choose the SMS option, all they will simply need to show is their phone to pass through security and board the plane.”
