Taipei, June 19 (CNA) China Airlines (CAL) announced Friday that it will require all passengers to board its flights via the current online check-in service from June 22, to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.

Passengers can use CAL's website or mobile app to check-in online from 48 hours to 80 minutes before their flight departs, the Taiwanese airline said, adding that it will also suspend all kiosk check-in service at airports in Taiwan.

Although there will still be CAL ground staff at airports to help with boarding, there will only be a few, the carrier said.

Passengers who have completed online check-in can check-in their luggage at the airport or Taoyuan airport mass rapid transit (MRT) line's Taipei Main Station, CAL said.

Those who have only carry-on luggage can go directly to the waiting room 40 minutes before departure, it said.
