Mobile boarding passes are being trialled by easyJet, another step in the direction of completely paperless travel. The UK’s largest airline is now testing the system at Amsterdam, Edinburgh, Manchester, Nice, Stansted and Southend airports.
easyJet says that passengers travelling from the airports included in the tryout can now check-in in less than 10 seconds, download and store their boarding passes on iPhone and Android phones.
Peter Duffy, Marketing Director for easyJet, commented: “Following a successful trial, we will be working with each of the airports in order to rollout the function across the network. The assessment will also be extended to include multiple boarding passes on the same device so that families can all check in using one or a number of mobiles, depending on their preference”.
Designed to be simple and easy to use, the pass offers passengers peace of mind by displaying their status as ‘checked in’ or ‘not checked in’. Once boarding passes have been downloaded they are stored offline so no network coverage or wi-fi is required and no roaming charges will be incurred. The app also has Apple’s popular Passbook functionality so that customers can easily store boarding passes for upcoming trips in one, convenient place. www.easyjet.com
