Air Canada’s latest web signal service saves you time at the airport



Inside BlackBerry has a great new post up regarding Air Canada’s latest web signal service which combines web check-in with an Electronic Boarding Pass.

The Air Canada web signal service gives the user one-click access to flight information directly from the BlackBerry. The service also allows you to use the same email address that you use to register for Flight Notifications on the web. This means you will be updated as soon as possible if there are any changes.

One of the best parts of this service is the sensation you get when using a barcode on your BlackBerry rather than a paper boarding pass. You can bypass lineups and save time, which is a reward for being so technologically ahead of the curve.
