Thousands of passengers have already used CUSS systems or online check-in to skip the queues Common User Self Service systems
Passengers travelling from Manchester can take advantage of the airport's CUSS systems to check in for their scheduled flights with Monarch, and bypass the queues to start their holiday queues quickly and easily.
CUSS systems have a number of advantages over traditional check-in:
- No queue, no hassle
- Quicker than a traditional check in desk
- Simple, easy to use touch screen function
- Print your own boarding card
To check-in for your flight, you just need to follow these five simple steps: - Identify yourself by entering either;

· Your credit card
· Your e-ticket number

If you do not have any luggage, proceed straight to security.
CUSS - which stands for Common User Self Service - has been operational for over a year and in that time Monarch has seen the number of passengers using the system rise to almost 20%. In May the airline's original pod of CUSS kiosks was re-sited and the number of kiosks increased from three to five. In addition the number of bag drop desks has been increased to four to allow even more passengers to use the system.
