Boarding Pass by SMS

Posted by Admin on October 24, 2008

A story on Travel News today is announcing that Lufthansa passengers flying from Heathrow can have their boarding pass sent to them by SMS or email. The message contains a barcode that allows the passenger to pass through security.

What a great idea as a way to reduce check-in time (a huge pain in the arse bum) and almost ensure that tickets don’t get lost or forgotten. Everyone carries their phone around with them and of course everyone can work out what to do when they’ve received an SMS from the airline.

I hope more airlines start to do this.
