Malaysia Airlines, among other airlines, uses the e-ticket, or electronic ticket, option, which does not require the printing of actual paper tickets. The traveller, however, should check in via the Internet on the airline's website or via mobile device prior to the flight. Confirming a flight makes check-in at the airport speedier and assures the traveller that his personal reservation is confirmed. Confirming Malaysia Airlines ticket takes only a few minutes.
