Ukraine International Airlines has announced the launch of its Web Check-in and Auto Check-in facilities for all passenger categories. Earlier, some passenger categories could not previously take advantage of these services due to technical restrictions.

With the launch of this service, UIA has also announced that checking-in at counters manned by the airline's officers at airports will be hereby a chargeable service.

UIA has also launched the Auto Check-in service for passengers who were unable to check in online prior to the flight, but submitted correct passport and contact details when booking their tickets. In this case, passengers are checked-in and e-mailed their boarding passes automatically.

Currently, Auto Check-in is available for Economy Class passengers of UIA PS services except for

Once checked-in, either online or automatically, passengers are required to save their e-boarding passes to any portable device or print them out.

Once at the origin airport, the above-mentioned passenger categories are required to head to a check-in counter to clear through pre-flight documentary formalities. Passengers travelling with infants/children may proceed straight to aviation security with further clearance by an immigration control officer.

"We at UIA aspire to make our passengers' pre-flight experience the most client-friendly possible," noted Evgeniya Satska, UIA Corporate Press Secretary, in a press release.

"We developed an efficient IT-solution that empowered us to omit one of the most inconvenient pre-flight steps, namely queuing at a check-in counter. From now on, all our passengers may choose out of several check-in options and therefore, economize on time and efforts," the press release continued.
