Lufthansa has launched a new automatic check-in service for customers travelling on flights within Germany and to selected European destinations.

The new service applies to flights that are “completely within the Schengen area”, as well as to Lufthansa Express Rail and Bus services.

Customers who have added their personal details in their Miles and More accounts of Lufthansa ID profile, will be automatically sent their mobile boarding pass 23 hours before departure – providing the flight was booked at least 24 hours before departure.

Under the new system passengers will still be able to change their seat or opt to cancel check in, as well as use online services such as activating electronic luggage tags.

Customers can also opt out of the automatic check-in service in their customer profile, and those without a Miles and More account of Lufthansa ID, can opt for automatic check-in on an individual flight basis by following the link in their booking confirmation.

Lufthansa recently extended its LoungeNet digital services, enabling guests to access yoga routines and to print from an increasing number of lounge locations, using the LoungeNet portal.
