easyJet ticket scan

The paperless airline gets nearer and nearer with easyJet introducing new scanning technology enabling passengers to scan their passport using a phone camera.  The Luton-based airline claims to be the first in Europe to use such a feature. 

James Millett, easyJet’s Head of Digital, said: “Our new mobile passport scanning function will save time for the millions of customers who use the app to input their travel documentation details.  It’s another example of innovating to make travel as easy as it is affordable with easyJet.”

“We’ve developed the new function in partnership with credentials management service Jumio to ensure details can be scanned in easily, safely and securely.  Combined with our mobile boarding passes customers can now check-in on their mobiles up to two hours before flights in 110 of the airports easyJet fly to across Europe.”

The mobile app is now available to download and was recently awarded ‘Best Mobile Booking Solution’ at the Mobile Travel and Tourism Awards 2014, and ‘Best B2C App’ at the Marketing on Mobile Award last year.  www.easyjet.com
