Flybe introduces automatic check-in option

Flybe has taken steps to improve and speed up check-in with the introduction of an automatic check-in option at the time of booking.

Today, 11 December 2012, sees the airline become the first UK airline to offer passengers an automatic check-in option when at the point of 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 available at Gatwick Airport and eight other airports Flybe operates at: Belfast City, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Exeter, Glasgow, Jersey, Manchester and Southampton. Automated e-mail check-in only is available from an additional 17 airports. This will be implemented for travel from Tuesday December 11th with plans being well advanced for further roll-out across the wider network in the New Year.

“This is the next step in our commitment to ‘Make flying better’,” says 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.”

This is yet another way in which Flybe is determined to take the industry lead and improve the range of products on offer when you choose to fly with Europe’s largest regional airline.

Adds Mr Lilley: “We are confident many of our passengers will take advantage of this innovative new product and enjoy it as yet another positive step Flybe has taken towards ‘Making flying better’ for our passengers at all stages of their journey with us.”
