JAL Group Starts International Flight Web Check-in
Tokyo, March 2, 2005: From April 1, 2005, the JAL Group will start a new Web check-in service for international flights on most routes on the JAL Group network (*). This easy and speedy service will be available for JAL Mileage Bank (JMB) members registered in Japan holding an e-ticket or ATB ticket (magnetic boarding pass)(**). JMB is the JAL frequent flier mileage programme.
The International Flight Web Check-in Service allows customers to select a seat on the seat map displayed on the Web screen of their computer or cell phone and check-in from three days before the departure date up to one hour prior to flight departure. Customers can even change seats, which was not possible with the advance seat selection service.
On completing Web check-in, customers can easily and speedily pick up their boarding pass at an airport Self-check-in Machine or JAL airport counter. E-ticket holders using the Self-check-in Machines need only to insert their passport and their boarding pass will be issued in about 20 seconds (***).
JAL will install exclusive Self-check-in Machines for International Flight Web Check-in at Narita, Kansai, Nagoya (Centrair) and Haneda Airports for customers using the Web check-in system, to help make boarding procedures even smoother. Customers with baggage can check-in their baggage at a nearby baggage check-in counter.
(*) Excluding flights departing from Paris, Zurich, Moscow, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh, Xiamen, Xian, Qingdao, Hangzou, Dalian and Tianjin, and code-share flights operated by partner airlines.
(**) Excluding group travel ticket holders.
(***) International Flight Self-check-in Machines are located at Narita, Kansai, Nagoya (Centrair), Haneda and London. At other airports, customers are requested to go to the check-in counter to pick up their boarding pass, but it will take less time than usual.
