American Airlines expands mobile boarding passes

MANCHESTER is one of eight European airports where American Airlines (AA) has now introduced a mobile boarding pass option.  Mobile boarding passes use a two-dimensional (2-D) barcode and were rolled out domestically in partnership with the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in 2008.  Heathrow was the first international airport chosen by American for the service.  The mobile boarding pass process is simple.  When customers check in for their flight using AA’s website and opt to receive their boarding pass on their mobile phone, they receive an email with an internet link to the boarding pass.  Customers must have an active email address where their boarding pass can also be sent and an internet-enabled mobile phone where the 2-D barcode can be received.  The mobile boarding pass contains a barcode that can be scanned both at security checkpoints and at the gate. www.aa.com
