Checking in for a JetBlue Flight Now So Easy, It's Automatic
July 14, 2014 at 8:03 AM
Those flying aboard JetBlue just might have an easier experience to look forward to, as the carrier is now in process of rolling out automatic check-in. That’s right—soon there'll be no need to line up at the airport or deal with things online in advance, as JetBlue will already have you sorted.
This update started last week, and boarding passes are now sent to passengers around 24 hours in advance of the flight. Printing them out the old fashioned way is an option, or travelers can certainly download a mobile boarding pass. This will certainly come in handy when you’re not near WiFi or a computer, or are rushing to the airport and concerned you’ll miss the deadline for check-in before your flight.
The only catch is that automatic check-in is currently only an option for domestic flights, and only for those who booked one of those JetBlue ‘Even More Space’ options.
Everyone else is still stuck with the traditional check-in experience for now; however, there are plans to extend the automatic check-in process to others before too long. The next round of expansion should include international flights, but it’ll probably be later in 2015 before everyone enjoys the ease.
