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.
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.”
