The passangers flying from the international Prague-Ruzyně Airport won't wait in the long lines in front of the check-in desks. By the end of June this year, first airlines will offer the possibility of internet check-in from home or hotel. As informed CTK (Czech press agency), Air France and British Airways start as first airlines. KLM, Swiss, Finnair and Lufthansa will follow. »Czech national courier - CSA - counts with the offer of the internet check-in in the second half of this year,« said spokeswoman of CSA, Jitka Novotná.

If the client uses the internet check-in, he uses the websites to choose the available seat and print out the boarding pass. Same as he would get if he stayed in the queue. With printed boarding pass he could head into the pass control directly. It is, of course, available for passangers with cabin luggage only.
