HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

There is no need to print a paper ticket anymore, if you are flying out of Huntsville International Airport.

Passengers can now use their smartphones to check-in for their flights.

Electronic boarding passes are being accepted by all airline carriers and at the TSA checkpoint.

This allows passengers to check-in before they arrive, and even bypass the ticket counter if they only have carry-on luggage.

It makes the boarding process faster and increases security. The electronic boarding pass confirms the authenticity of the ticket, and helps prevent passengers from presenting fraudulent boarding passes.

"It takes the human error out of the check-in process. Everything is loaded into the Aztec barcode and that really makes the screening process a lot more secure," said airport spokesperson Chantel Minish.

The electronic boarding pass found in your email inbox has a bar code that can be scanned from your phone at airline kiosks in the terminal, the security checkpoint, and airline counters at the gate.

Paper boarding passes are still being accepted at Huntsville International Airport.
