Azerbaijan Airlines (AZAL), the flag carrier of Azerbaijan, has launched mobile and web check-in for its passengers.

The services, provided by global air transport IT provider SITA, are part of the airlines preparations for the surge of traffic this week as the country hosts the Eurovision Song Contest.

AZAL has adopted SITAs Horizon PassengerMobile which gives travelers a wider choice of self-service options. The airlines passengers can now check-in, select their seat and generate their boarding pass simply by using their mobile phones or via the web. They can also board the flight using a self-printed boarding pass.

The new check-in services have been introduced as part of the national infrastructure developments as the country prepares to host the Eurovision Song Contest that takes place over four days and attracts visitors from 42 countries.

Eldar Hajiyev, Executive President, Azerbaijan Airlines, said, This is an exciting time for our country and we are proud to offer these world-class services to all the visitors coming to Azerbaijan for the Eurovision Song Contest. SITA worked closely with us under a tight deadline to get the services in place by today and we are delighted that we are ready for the busy days ahead. SITAs passenger services are used by leading airlines and airports around the world and this investment will provide a smoother journey for the more than one million passengers who fly with AZAL each year.

Later this year, SITA will also provide AZAL with kiosk check-in for its passengers at Baku Heydar Aliyev International Airport and Moscow Domodedovo Airport.

AZAL operates passenger flights across Europe, the CIS, Middle East and Asia. In 2014, the airline plans to introduce long-haul flights to destinations in North America and Southeast Asia using newly purchased Boeing aircraft.

The Eurovision Song Contest 2012 Grand Final takes place on 26 May 2012.
