Singapore Airlines (SIA) has joined a growing band of airlines
offering travellers the option of checking in using their mobile phones
and plans to allow ticket booking and other services soon (see online
news, January 23, 2009).
Travellers can choose their seat
using the SIA Mobile system and also check-in for connections from
their SIA flight, providing the connecting airline has a check-in
agreement with SIA.
The service is available on
Singapore-registered mobile phones, using the SIA Mobile, but can be
used anywhere in the world, allowing travellers to check in for flights
between two hours and two days before departure.
Singapore prepaid and post-paid mobile services from SingTel, M1 and
StarHub can be used. The mobile check-in facility supports most major
internet-enabled phone models.
“SIA Mobile” will also be
enhanced later this year to include more features such as booking of
tickets and accessing of selected KrisFlyer services.

software onto their handsets or accessing the check-in services
directly through their mobile handset’s web browser.
The “SIA Mobile” Check-In feature is available on all sectors of Singapore Airlines flights.
