goodbye paper tickets, welcome e-tickets

Triple Pundit brings us very good news: The global airlines body IATA will stop using paper tickets and will move entirely on electronic ticketing from June 1 next year.

Giovanni Bisignani, director general of IATA told Reuters that in just 278 more days, the paper ticket will become a collector's item. We were pleased to hear from Bisignani that this changeover will save about 50,000 trees a year!!

Now, all is left to do is to ask all the passengers to print their electronic tickets on recycled paper..
