Finnair will let its frequent fliers check in using text messages on mobile phones beginning in October and is open to the airline's Finnair Plus cardholders. It will let those passengers who have only carry-on luggage to go directly to the departure gate, bypassing the regular check-in procedures (they still have to go through a security check). After passengers have activated the service, they will automatically receive a check-in text message with details, including the seat number. The passenger needs only to send a reply to confirm the seat assignment. The text message service applies to all international flights leaving from Helsinki and Stockholm. Finnair said its check-in using SMS, or Short Message Service, is the first worldwide to work on all mobile phone models and all networks without charges.
