Lufthansa has introduced it’s mobile barcode ticketing service to passengers flying Lufthansa from Bristol airport. Passengers can make use of the facility on direct flights to Germany from Bristol and to most onward destinations served by Lufthansa in Europe.
The launch of the mobile boarding pass scheme at Bristol follows the successful introduction of the facility on about 1,000 daily flights out of Germany to almost 400 European destinations in September. The service will come to more European destinations over the year.
The boarding passes are sent web-enabled phones by email or text, along with flight info like the passenger’s name, flight number and time of departure.
What we think?
Airlines adopting mobile ticketing is getting to be old news at this stage, but it’s still worth mentioning when it comes up. The further across Europe these services spread, the higher the profile of barcoding gets. As more consumers become comfortable with 2d codes as a reliable, secure service it’s far more likely they’ll get adopted for other transactions.
