QR codes are making the check-in process at Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport a little bit easier.
For passengers who do not have to check in any baggage can check in by going to the Chinese language http://www.xmairport.com.cn/, the airport’s Web site.
On the site, they will be required to submit their personal information. After that, they will receive a message containing a QR code.
They will have to present this QR codes when they board. Security staff at the airport will have QR code readers to read the QR codes straight from their phones.
Passengers can use this mobile boarding system at four access points serving domestic flights: A, E, F and G. All of these access points already have the necessary barcode reader.
The barcode scanners will also be able to identify if the QR code is authentic or not. After the scan, the security staff will then give passengers boarding certificates.
For those who do not want the QR code, they can print out a boarding pass instead.
Not the First
This is not the first time that QR codes have appeared in airports. Aside from acting as a mobile boarding pass, QR codes have also been used to disseminate information to travelers.
One such example is found at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International. At the Sky Harbor, passengers can scan QR codes to get information on car rental companies in the area, or get airline information, or even get a list of restaurants inside the airport.
What makes this initiative notable is that you do not have to look very hard for these QR codes as they are printed on the shirts worn by airport staff.
The QR codes at Sky Harbor can help you:
1. Get updates on your flight.
2. Get parking locations, transportation, shops, services and restaurants.
3. Fill out a taxi feedback report.
4. Report problems related to restrooms.
