We are introducing Web check in

With online flight check in, passengers at Ljubljana's Jože Pučnik Airport are now offered greater choice in completing formalities before the departure of their flight. This is one of the first airports in Europe to offer passengers check in over the Internet. Approximately 300,000 passengers are expected to use this service in a single year.

Using the Internet for web check in is a technological advancement that allows check in to be completed on any computer with Internet access. By using the simple application on the website www.lju-airport.si passengers can check in for their flight even before they get to the airport. In this way they can avoid waiting in line at the check in counter and save time.

Passengers can check in on the Internet from 24 hours to 60 minutes before the scheduled departure time of the aircraft. By clicking on the promotional button on the website, they can first find out about check in procedure, restrictions and conditions. Then they must enter their information, select a seat in the aircraft and finally print out the boarding card for their flight. The bottom portion of the boarding card has a special bar code which is used to let passengers board the aircraft. Passengers who also wish to check in baggage must go to the drop off counter at the airport (marked B1), where they can use their already printed boarding card to check in their baggage.

Web check in is available for direct flights with scheduled service carriers, but not for connecting, charter and budget flights (passengers travelling on easyJet can check in for their flights at http://www.easyjet.com/en/book/index.asp). At the end of February it will also be possible to check in online for connecting flights and flights to the United Kingdom, which the application does not allow for the moment.

And web check in is not the only new technological feature at Ljubljanas Jože Pučnik Airport. Since the middle of December, free WiFi Internet access has been offered in the main passenger terminal and the General Aviation Centre. The Airport Public connection is an open type, which means that to get online you do not need any keys or security settings on the device you are connecting to the Internet.
