Paperless check-in and boarding procedures now cover all domestic flights at Hongqiao International Airport's T2.

From Monday, passengers can use a QR code sent by airlines to their mobile phone when they book a flight to complete check-in, customs clearance, immigration inspection, security checks and boarding.

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.

Previously, such paperless check-in and boarding procedures were available for flights of Spring Airlines and Cathay Pacific at Hongqiao's T1. Pudong airport began the same paperless service in October last year.
