Emirates launches mobile boarding pass service
Emirates boosted its paperless ambitions this week by offering customers the option of receiving a mobile boarding pass on their internet-enabled mobile device.
The service is available to all passengers who utilise Emirates’ online check-in facility out of Dubai up to 24 hours in advance. Passengers can log on to www.emirates.com, and can choose to receive a web-link to their mobile boarding pass by email or SMS, that displays a barcoded boarding pass on their internet-enabled phone.
“The launch of Emirates’ mobile boarding pass not only supports paperless travel and the reduction of paper waste, but also meets the demands of a new era of travellers, who seek a more sophisticated and efficient means of managing their business and leisure travel,” said Mohammed H Mattar, divisional senior vice president of airport services, Emirates. “The mobile boarding pass puts flexibility and control completely in the hands of our customers, while making a small step towards reducing our environmental impact.”
The mobile boarding pass can be scanned and read directly at all check-in counters, airport security check points, Dubai immigration, Emirates first class and business class lounges, and boarding gates.
