Given the widespread use of computers and the Internet, many airlines today utilise online accounts to provide travellers with their plane tickets. Historically, until the 1990s, airline companies used to provide a multi-layer ticket form with various sections being perforated for easy separation by ticket officials. Today, a traveler can simply click a computer print button on an airline website. These printed tickets can be produced in multiple paper copies which can then be scanned with an airline bar code reader when validating travel by plane.
Turn your computer on and access the Internet once the operating software and Internet browser have loaded. Open your email browser as well.
Click on the Internet to go to your airline's website. Purchase an airline ticket online with your credit card, inputting the identification and purchase data as instructed on the airline website. Wait for your ticket and confirmation receipt to appear.
Turn on your computer printer. Insert blank paper. Print your ticket and confirmation receipt.
Wait for the printer to finish producing the copies and confirm that the documents printed as desired. Bring the ticket with you to the airport. Its a good idea to save the e-ticket as a PDF in case you need to re-print it although most airlines will allow you to re-access the e-ticket online to reprint.
Show your government identification, like a driver's license or passport, and your printed ticket to get past airport security and to board your plane.
