United Airlines Expands Electronic Ticketing System Nationwide
CHICAGO (AP) _ United Airlines’ electronic ticketing service now is available on all of its 2,000 daily domestic flights.
Passengers purchasing tickets for flights beginning Sept. 18 can now choose the service, called E-Ticket.
Customers purchase tickets as they normally would, over the phone or through a travel agent. On the day of travel, customers just show photo identification at the airport to receive their boarding passes, without having to provide a confirmation number, United spokeswoman Sue Fullman said Monday.
``It’s a perfect fit for the frequent business traveler who makes a number of trips each month, often changes flight itineraries and doesn’t want to worry about keeping track of tickets,″ she said.
United began offering the option last November on more than 375 daily Shuttle flights on the West Coast. In April, the option was introduced on more than 200 daily BusinessOne flights in and out of Chicago.
