Jet Airways to introduce bar-coded Mobile boarding passes on select flights from Bengaluru, Mumbai and Delhi

By February 20th, 2015 AT 6:46 AM

jetairways-mobile-boarding-passJet Airways in connection with Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) and Bangalore International Airport Limited has started a pilot project for Mobile Boarding Pass.

Passengers of Jet Airways can now use barcoded boarding passes on their mobile phones to enter Bengaluru’s International Airport and broad Jet Airways flights.

The project is in beta phase and the service is currently available on select Jet Airways flights from Bengaluru to Mumbai and Delhi. To enable this service, Bangalore International Airport Limited has installed mobile boarding pass scanners at the terminal entrance, security checkpoints, and boarding gates. With this project, Jet Airways aim to enable paperless faster-boarding process for its flight.

Few years ago, Indian Railways had enabled paperless ticket by using SMS confirmation and identity proof instead of print out of reservation ticket for online booking. This was a great success as it saved both hassles of taking print out before travel and paper. It is already high time for the airline industry to move towards paperless travel.

Do let us know by comment on Jet Airways Mobile Boarding Pass project.
