Automatic check-in launched by Estonian Air
Passengers flying with Estonian Air can now choose to be checked-in automatically by entering their mobile phone number during the booking process. Alternatively, they can make use of online check-in or self-service check-in via airport kiosks.
Estonian Air has introduced an automatic check-in service, which allows passengers to automatically receive a link to their boarding pass via their mobile phone, rather than having to check-in manually.
Passengers can enter their mobile phone number during the booking process and they will then receive check-in confirmation and a link to their boarding pass at 19:00 for flights departing the next day between 02:00 and 11:00, or four hours before the departure time for flights that depart after 11:00.
Passengers can either present the mobile boarding pass at the airport, or they can print their boarding pass via the carrier’s website if they would rather have a paper copy.
Vilma Oras, Ground Handling Manager, Estonian Air, said: “Within (recent) years, self-service check-in has become the norm and is increasingly available across a variety of channels, including online, at airport kiosks and via mobile devices…Taking the concept of self-service check-in one step further, we have made checking in for our customers even easier.”
Automated check-in is available on Estonian Air direct flights departing from Amsterdam, Brussels, Copenhagen, Tallinn, Vilnius, Oslo, Paris, Trondheim, Stockholm and Nice.
