SAS unveils self-print boarding pass


Scandinavian Aircraft Systems (SAS) is to introduce self-print boarding passes for passengers who wish to avoid queues at UK airports.

The passes entitle users to check in up to 22 hours before their flight takes off and check in their bags at a self-service unit.

They will then be able to head straight to security having avoided the crowds, TravelMole reports.

Lars-Ove Filipson, general manager of the carrier's UK and Ireland operations, said: "This new service will help to streamline the airport experience for both our leisure and business customers."

The initiative will initially be rolled out at London Heathrow, London City as well as Manchester, Birmingham and Aberdeen.

Customers will be able to swap seats or upgrade the area of the plane they are travelling in while printing the pass.

News of the innovative scheme comes as SAS was this week the first commercial airline to fly over the Atlantic using a green descent approach to cut emissions and fuel consumption
