Paperless check-in and boarding procedures for flights to Hong Kong are now available at Hongqiao International Airport.

Passengers can use a QR code sent by Cathay Pacific to their mobile phone when they book a flight to complete check-in, customs clearance, immigration inspection, security checks and boarding at the T1 terminal.

They can also shop at duty free stores by scanning the code on their phone.

Passengers with large luggage still need to check it in at the airline’s counter, but they can complete check-in with their mobiles.

The T1 building completed three years of renovation last October, featuring streamlined check-in and boarding procedures.

It also has China’s first self-service check-in that allows passengers to print tickets, check in luggage and board, all without queuing at staffed counters.

Pudong airport began the same paperless service in October last year.
