Easyjet launches online check-ins.
BUDGET airline Easyjet yesterday launched online check-in and a 15-minute gate arrival time for passengers travelling only with hand baggage.
The internet check-in service is available from all routes from London's Gatwick and Stansted airports and Edinburgh.
It will be rolled out to customers across Europe and should be available to 90% of passengers by April, Easyjet said.
Travellers will still face the same security checks, the firm said.
Passengers who have checked in online will be able to arrive at the boarding gate 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time.
Online check-in is available with many major airlines including British Airways and Virgin Atlantic. Andy Harrison, Easyjet chief executive, said: "With online check-in and Europe's most generous hand-baggage allowance, it is no surprise that business passengers keep flocking to us."
EasyJet braced investors for pre-tax losses of pounds 45m for the six months to March 31 - double the pounds 22m deficit that it recorded at the same stage last year.
