A boarding coupon is a document that is a pass for a passenger to board a plane. Traditionally, the forms of these coupons for airlines are standard - a piece of cardboard about 20x8 centimeters in size, divided into two parts. The left part of the boarding pass on the plane during the landing is torn off and left to itself by the airport employees, and the right part is owned by the passenger.
Types of boarding passes
Depending on the type of registration and airline, these documents may vary. So, when registering with online services, the boarding pass looks like a regular sheet of A4 paper. The classic letterhead indicates the flight and ticket numbers, boarding time, class of service, seat number. However, for passengers who use the services of low-cost airlines, the number of seats in coupons does not indicate, but if priority landing is paid, then its type is indicated.
Another type of ticket is electronic. The airline sends a message to the mobile phone with a code. At the airport, the phone must be attached to the scanner for reading data. However, you will not be able to board an airplane without a usual ticket, you will be given it at the check-in counter.
Getting a boarding pass
Often, airlines are offered their customers to receive boarding passes directly at the reception or by registering on the Internet, followed by their printing. It is worth noting that some air carriers charge a printed fee for printing this document on the printer.
You can get a boarding pass with the help of self-registration machines installed at airports. It's enough just to enter your own data and ticket number. The machine will issue a printed version of your boarding pass. Thus, you always have alternative options for getting a boarding pass.
Restoration of lost boarding pass
Often passengers are faced with a situation where the boarding pass is lost. What should I do and where should I go? Is it possible to restore a boarding pass at all, and how? If registration in your case was carried out via the Internet, then most likely the file with this data was saved on your computer, in e-mail or on other digital media. In this case, the restoration of the boarding pass is a matter of several minutes. It is enough to repeatedly print the file.
If the registration was carried out directly at the airport, then the answer to the question of how to restore the boarding pass will upset you - this is impossible, unfortunately.
