Lufthansa Launches Mobile Barcode Boarding Passes
From Just The Flight Lufthansa Launches Mobile Boarding Passes
German airline Lufthansa has announced a new service that allows passengers to use their mobile phones to access electronic boarding passes.
While the scheme is currently only available for those traveling from Hamburg to Munich or Frankfurt, it is hoped that it will be rolled out further if it proves successful.
The service sees flyers who check in online and select the option to do so being sent a boarding pass via email or SMS to their internet-enabled handsets. These passes include information such as passenger name, flight number and a 2D barcode.
