Russian airport unveils Skype mobile check-in


Sheremetyevo International Airport Skype Check-In

Sheremetyevo International Airport has extended its Skype-based check-in capabilities to include mobile phones.

Sheremetyevo International Airport has launched a new service for passengers flying from the Moscow airport, which allows them to check-in for their flight using a Skype app on their mobile phone.

Passengers can call the operator (svo_checkin) and provide their name, passport details and flight details. The operator will then send an SMS containing a unique 2D code. This code can then be scanned upon arrival at the airport and a boarding pass is printed out.

The Skype service was initially introduced in November 2011, but has now been extended to include mobile phones.

Andrey Nikulin, the airport’s Director for Passenger Service Department, said: “The main goal of Sheremetyevo is to become the best air hub in Europe in terms of passenger service quality by 2015. We’ll reach this aim by implementing unique services, equal to the ones in the best world airports.”
