Paper ticket is a self carbon docket that has information about your travel. Paper tickets carry information such as passenger name, ticket number, booking reference, airfare, taxes, fare calculation, sectors, flight number date of travel etc. IATA agents or the airlines are authorized to issue paper tickets. All airlines have discontinued the use of paper tickets due to high printing, distribution and reporting costs. E–tickets (electronic ticket) have replaced paper tickets since 1 June, 2008.
