Continental Airlines announced that it has implemented Web check-in for eTicketed customers traveling throughout the United States. The new service offers customers who are traveling without luggage the convenience of checking in and obtaining a boarding pass from their home or office so they may proceed directly to security at the airport.
Federal regulations require that customers obtain a boarding pass before proceeding to the gate. By expanding the check-in process beyond the airport, customers are able to bypass ticket counters at the airport.
Check-in is available to customers up to 12 hours prior to their scheduled flight, and up to one hour prior to departure. To use check-in online, go to http://www.continental.com, select “Travel Center” and “Flight Check-in.” Customers may print their boarding pass directly from their computer on regular paper.
