The international airport of Krasnodar started accepting electronic boarding passes from passengers taking domestic flights.

The international airport of Krasnodar started servicing passengers with electronic boarding passes (EBP). These passes are yet accepted for domestic destinations, as reported by the Press-Service of the International airport of Krasnodar.

The equipment for independent scanning of an electronic boarding pass is installed at the special control checkpoints when entering the departure lounge as well as at the boarding gates.    

It is required to preserve an electronic document on a mobile device in order to have access to it in case of web disconnection. EBP can be requested both at the airport and on board the airplane.

The Press-Service clarified that for the time being "Airoflot" and S7 airlines have failed to confirm their willingness to handle electronic media.

The Decree of RF Ministry of Transport permitting passengers to pass preflight inspection and to board via electronic pass has entered into force on February 24, 2019. When boarding, it suffices for passengers with EBP to show a Smartphone or tablet screen with QR-code of electronic ticket.
