Online check-in for Cyprus Airways September 15, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in News Flights.

Cyprus Airways has launched an online check-in facility where passengers can simply choose their seat and print off their boarding pass, and, if travelling with only hand luggage, can proceed straight to the departure area.

The service is available to all Cyprus Airways passengers travelling with an e-ticket and with a confirmed booking on direct flights departing from Larnaca or Paphos airports. It is available 24 hours a day, every day. Passengers can check in from 24 hours before their flight to three hours before departure.

The online service has four easy steps. Once a passenger enters the details of their reservation, they then review the itinerary. All information about the flight is displayed, including flight number, departure date, departure time, departure airport, destination airport and arrival time on destination. Once the passenger list appears, the traveller selects the name of the person to be checked in. If more than one passenger is travelling, the name-select process is repeated.

The seat map of the aircraft is then displayed and passengers can choose the seat they want from the ones remaining. Occupied and available seats are clearly displayed, Cyprus Airways said. After choosing a seat, passengers can print their boarding passes. If someone changes their mind about a seat, it can be changed before the printing stage.

Passengers with baggage can then go to the “Quick Drop Baggage” counter. “If there is no ‘Quick Drop Baggage’ counter, you must go to Cyprus Airways’ check-in counter,” Cyprus Airways said.

People who book with a travel agency, and not directly from the airline are allowed to use the online check-in, but electronic checking in is not allowed if a person has a connecting flight.

To celebrate the launch of the new service, Cyprus Airways will hold a draw for three tickets among all customers who use the electronic check in during the first week of October. Over 90 per cent of Cyprus Airways routes use electronic ticketing, and by May 2008 it will be available to all destinations.
