Understanding the Information on Your KAI Boarding Pass

Written by Ganjar 

When you're preparing to travel by train, it's essential first to convert your electronic ticket into a physical boarding pass. This boarding pass not only acts as your proof of being a passenger but also provides crucial details about your trip.

To ensure a smooth and hassle-free trip, it's important to familiarize yourself with the information on this pass. If you're uncertain about any part of it, this article will help you understand each piece of information on your boarding pass.

Booking Code

When you book a train ticket, you'll receive a booking code. This code on the boarding pass matches the one on your electronic ticket. If you've booked seats for multiple passengers under a single reservation, they will all share this same booking code.

Name

This section displays the passenger's full name. Please ensure it aligns with the identity card provided during the ticket booking process.

ID Number

Here, you'll find the initial part of the identity number you provided during booking, such as an ID or Passport number. For your privacy and protection, only the first two digits are visible, while the rest are obscured with "XXX".

Pax type

This section indicates the category of the passenger. A standard booking would be labeled "GENERAL". However, if you have made bulk reservations or any special booking, this might change.

Train

This section identifies the specific train you're taking, mentioning both its name and its unique number. It's worth noting that the train's number distinguishes it from others in the same series but with different departure times.

For instance, if your boarding pass mentions the "Argo Wilis" train number 6, it specifies that particular train and not carriage number 6.

Seat Number

Your seat allocation is detailed here, starting with the type and number of the carriage, followed by the specific seat number within it. If it says "EKS-5 / 4A," you'll be in the fifth executive carriage, seated at 4A.

Departure

This section lists your departure station (including its full name and code) and your departure time. The date format will specify the day, month, and year, and will also mention the time zone used.

Estimated Time Arrival (ETA)

Your destination station and the expected time of your arrival are given here. However, it's important to note that this time is an estimate, and real-time conditions might lead to earlier or later arrivals.

Check in

This indicates where and when your boarding pass was printed. The location is often coded, primarily recognizable by the KAI (the train authority). The timestamp is detailed, showcasing the date and exact time.

Vaccine Status

Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, this section was introduced to reflect the status of your Covid-19 vaccination. Depending on the evolving health guidelines, this could be removed in the future.

Barcode

A barcode is present on the boarding pass, encapsulating details about your identity as a passenger. Officers will typically scan this barcode upon platform entry to verify the consistency of data with your identity card.

It's crucial to be thoroughly informed by your boarding pass to prevent you from boarding the wrong train. Ensure you safeguard this document throughout your journey, as you may need to reference or present it multiple times.
