IBM Mobile Check-in (MCI) Solution for Airlines

Mobile Check-in is built on airline check-in common business logic shared among kiosk, web and mobile channels. Smart Phone users and those whose devices support the WAP 2.0 protocol, can use the Mobile Check-in Web Application. The application is delivered via the Web browser embedded in the phone and provides a full-feature check-in process similar in function to Web and kiosk check-in.

Passengers with older phones that do not support WAP or those without a data plan will be able to check-in via the Mobile Check-in SMS application. The SMS application uses the text-messaging features widely available in mobile plans to process check-in. Passengers simply exchange a number of text messages with the application in order to obtain their electronic boarding pass.
