Cathay launches handphone check-in
22 January, 2009：HONG KONG - Cathay Pacific has launched Mobile Check-In, which allows passengers with a Web-enabled mobile phone or other handheld device to check in for their flight at any time and from any location where there is wireless access to the Internet.
The new facility allows them to check in, select their preferred seats on the aircraft, and send a barcode to their mobile device.
This barcode can then be scanned at Self Check-In Kiosks at the airport, where available, to print their boarding pass.
To use the new service, passengers can open the web browser on their mobile device and type “m.cathaypacific.com” as the URL. They can then click onto the Check-in link in order to launch Mobile Check-In.
Marco Polo Club and Asia Miles members can also log in under the "Personal Itinerary" section on the mobile site to begin the check-in process.
In addition to the existing Online Booking facility, the airline has launched tools such as Online Check-In, Self Check-In Kiosks in Hong Kong and other destinations, and the recently introduced Self-Print Boarding Pass facility in Hong Kong and 11 destinations overseas.
