Finnair to introduce new text message check-in

     Finnair has announced that from October onwards its passengers will be able to check-in in advance with only a text message sent from their mobile phones. The service, created by Finnish company BookIT, only requires passengers to activate the service and then answer a text message before each flight departure.
     The SMS service will allow those passengers carrying only carry-on luggage to go directly to the departure gate. Passengers with luggage will have to proceed via the Baggage Drop desk in the departure hall.
     The text message check-in service will cover all international Finnair flights departing from Helsinki and Stockholm.
     According to Finnair, the service is the first text message-based service in the world to work on all mobile phone models and all operator connections.
