In addition, the carrier last month launched a new “Web Check-In” service for passengers traveling from its key domestic routes. The service enables passengers to check-in online and select a seat as early as 24 hours before departure.

Passengers may print out a boarding pass and bring it to the designated counter for quick ID verification and baggage check, if needed.

The airline will initially offer Web Check-In service to passengers who fly from Bangkok, Samui and Phuket to other domestic destinations, and will apply this service to its other destinations in the near future, it announced in a press release.
