Printer ink is playing a key role in the increasing adoption of online airport booking services in South Africa. According to, local airlines, together with Airports Company South Africa (ACSA), have unveiled a new system that means passengers can make flight bookings online and print off their boarding passes at home on their ink jet printers.

The system went live last month and has proved a hit with passengers, ACSA said. Johannesburg's OR Tambo International, Cape Town International, Port Elizabeth, Bloemfontein International Airports, and George and Kimberley Airports have all benefited from the process, which aims to eradicate queues at check-in.

"There are equally positive benefits for airlines, as the volume of people using their check-in desks will diminish, while giving them real-time monitoring of which passengers have already checked into the secure area," ACSA executive for airport operations, Bongani Maseko, said.
