More auto check-in at Helsinki.

A "quick and easy check-in option" is now available to more passengers at Helsinki-Vantaa as additional airlines adopt the automatic system provided by management company Finavia. Check-in kiosks will mean shorter queues and less waiting and are now also available to passengers flying with Blue1, SAS, Aer Lingus and Estonian Air. This means that more than 80% of all passengers at the airport can now use kiosks to check in, where previously this had only been available to those flying with Finnair, Finncomm and KLM. Located in all the departure halls, the kiosks provide quick access to check-in systems of all participating airlines.

Airport general manager Karl Salonen said that a passenger can check in at any vacant kiosk. He added that the kiosks, initially introduced around a year ago, have helped to ease congestion during peak hours in the morning and afternoon.

A number of carriers also provide an online check-in service.

Finavia offers airlines using Helsinki-Vantaa an opportunity to adopt the CUSS check-in system (Common Use Self Service). Currently, there are 24 check-in kiosks developed by IBM in the airport's domestic and international terminals.
