easyJet mobile at Gatwick

Gatwick, by far easyJet’s largest base, has gone mobile in terms of boarding passes.  Passengers travelling from the south London airport can now board their flights using mobile boarding passes on their Apple or Android smartphones.

Just four months after starting to trial the technology at six airports (Amsterdam, Edinburgh, Manchester, Southend and Stansted) mobile boarding passes are now available for around 85% of the easyJet network.

Over half a million mobile easyJet boarding passes have been downloaded since the airline added this functionality to the app.  #####

The paper saved to date would stack up to more than 60m high – taller than some of Europe’s most popular landmarks such as the Arc de Triomphe’s 50m, Nelson’s Column at 52m and the Leaning Tower of Pisa at 56m high.

The process has been designed to be as clear and simple as possible – passengers can see their status as ‘checked-in’ or ‘not checked-in’ and boarding passes are stored offline once downloaded, so that they can be accessed without incurring roaming charges or needing network coverage as early as 30 days ahead of the flight’s departure or as little as two hours before. www.easyjet.com
