An electronic ticket or e-ticket is used to represent the purchase of a seat on a passenger airline, usually through a website or by telephone. Once a reservation is made, an e-ticket exists only as a digital record in the airline computers. This new form of airline ticket is recently replacing the old paper tickets. For the traveler, the principal advantage of e-ticketing is the fact that it reduces booking expense by eliminating the need for printing and mailing paper documents. Another advantage is that it eliminates the possibility of critical documents getting lost in the mail or being sent to the wrong address. E-tickets also eliminate the problems and costs that travelers experienced when they lose a paper ticket.
