Southwest Airlines’ mobile boarding pass available at five more airports
Southwest Airlines now offers mobile boarding passes for passengers flying from eight different US airports.
Southwest Airlines has launched mobile boarding passes at five new destinations – Baltimore-Washington, Denver, Orlando, Chicago Midway and Phoenix Sky Harbor international airports.
The airline started testing mobile boarding passes in 2013 and earlier this year introduced them at Austin, Dallas Love Field and Houston Lobby airports, but has now extended the technology to more destinations.
Passengers departing from any of these eight airports can choose to have a mobile-optimised email containing their boarding pass sent to their mobile device. Alternatively they can choose to have the boarding pass sent to them via SMS.
Southwest Airlines has also confirmed that it intends to continue to expand mobile boarding passes throughout its network between now and the end of 2014.
