Etihad introduces mobile boarding pass
Travellers flying from 13 different cities will be able to use Etihad Airway’s mobile boarding pass.
Etihad Airways has introduced mobile boarding passes, which can be used by travellers flying with the Abu Dhabi-based carrier from 13 cities.
Passengers can check-in using their iPhone and choose to have their boarding pass either sent directly to their device and saved in Apple’s Passbook, or emailed to them as a PDF.
Peter Baumgartner, Chief Commercial Officer, Etihad Airways, said: “Our aim is to simplify and streamline the departure and boarding experience.
“The elimination of paper boarding passes will be more convenient for our guests and reduce our environmental footprint, which is good for the guest, the business and for the environment.”
The mobile boarding passes can be used by passengers flying from Abu Dhabi (with the exception of flights to the United States), London Heathrow, Manchester, Doha, Colombo, Dammam, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Sao Paulo, Istanbul, Minsk, Munich and Tokyo Narita.
