Calling Shanghai’s jetsetters! China Eastern Airlines will be introducing online and mobile phone boarding to its services in Shanghai next year, most likely in anticipation of the upcoming World Expo 2010.
The online service, shockingly a Shanghai first (we’re 30 cities behind on this!) will give passengers the ability to choose seats and print out boarding passes from China Eastern’s website.
Meanwhile, passengers using the phone service can download a barcode that, when scanned at the airport, prints out a boarding pass.
Other details are still pending, but the service should cut boarding times to just one minute.
A suggestion for China Eastern’s next goal: getting rid of delays.
