Check-in per barcode at Haneda - Tokyo's most advanced airport

At Haneda, passengers can order a ticket online via the internet and the airline will send a barcode by SMS to the customer. The passenger just has to hold the phone under one of 52 scanning devices at the airport and they are checked in.
According to ANA, passengers will need just eight seconds to check-in compared to the usual two minutes for passengers who check- in at the gate. Already 70 per cent of passengers at Haneda use these electronic tickets.
Presently, the only international destination served from Haneda is Gimpo near Seoul in South Korea. But that number of destinations is set to increase from 2009 onwards when a third landing strip is due to open with a length of three kilometres.
