1TIME has introduced e-Checkin, allowing customers to check-in for their flight through the internet.
“We realise that there are many times that people would prefer to check in themselves and avoid the rush at the airport, especially if they are running a few minutes late. As part of our continued commitment to innovative approaches that would make our passengers’ flight experience even easier and more time efficient, we decided to introduce the home e-Checkin option,” explains Rodney James, ceo of 1time Airline.
e-Checkin means that 1time passengers can now go onto the 1time website and formally book themselves in online; even being able to select their seat preferences. From there, passengers are able to download and print their own boarding passes.
“All passengers then need to do is bring their boarding pass to the airport with them and make use of our bag drop counter if they have luggage or they can head straight towards the boarding gates if they only have carry-on luggage with their photo ID for verification,” concludes Michael Kaminski, 1time’s IT director.
e-Checkin is available up to 30 days prior to departure and closes four hours before the flight departs, when the check in counters at the airport open for face-to-face to check in.
