BEIJING, Jan. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The carrier introduced self check-in at three additional airports outside Mainland China -- Vancouver International Airport, Osaka Kansai International Airport and Nagoya International Airport -- in December of 2011.
The user-friendly system supports transfer to other Chinese cities via Beijing and offers five languages including Chinese (both Simplified and Traditional), English, Japanese, Korean and French. It allows passengers to select their preferred seat, accrue Air China kilometers and print boarding pass, sparing them the trouble of having to queue in front of the traditional check-in counters.
The self check-in service is in compliance with the IATA industry standards and its introduction ties in well with the carrier's overall strategy to stay ahead of the competition in the field.
By the end of 2011, Air China has made self check-in available to eight airports outside Mainland China. The other five airports are Tokyo Narita, Tokyo Haneda, Hong Kong, Frankfurt, and Stockholm Arland.
