easyJet extends mobile boarding passes to Belfast International
According to the easyJet website, passengers can check-in and download mobile boarding passes via the app for any flight departing from 108 airports.
Low-cost carrier easyJet has become the first European airline to allow passengers to board their flight at Belfast International Airport using a mobile boarding pass.
Scanners have been installed at bag drop desks, security and departure gates across the airport, which can read mobile boarding passes that have been downloaded via easyJet’s app.
easyJet, an official partner of FTE Europe 2014, started trialling mobile boarding passes in May 2013 and has since been rolling out the technology across its network.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s Head of Northern Ireland, said: “We’re pleased to introduce mobile boarding passes across all easyJet flights from Belfast to make travel easier for our passengers.
“The service will be offered in addition to printed boarding passes and will allow customers to check-in and download their pass via the easyJet app.”
Uel Hoey, Business Development Director, Belfast International Airport, said: “This is another great initiative from easyJet and with the growth of mobile devices it makes sense that this service is in place for all of easyJet’s Belfast passengers.”
