Etihad Airways has introduced mobile boarding passes for passengers using its mobile online check-in facility.
The service is only available from selected airports.
The mobile boarding pass will contain the same information as traditional passes including guest name and seat number, as well as a barcode which will be scanned by an electronic reader at the departure gate.
The new feature is available for passengers travelling from Abu Dhabi, Heathrow, Manchester, Doha, Colombo, Dammam, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Sao Paulo, Istanbul, Minsk, Munich, and Tokyo Narita.
Etihad said the number of airport’s equipped with the mobile boarding pass readers will steadily increase as the airline installs the new technology across its global network.
