New airlines now Passbook ready

Written by matteo. Posted in News

In these days two other major airlines have increased the number of companies that offer Passbook support.

The first one is the Australian airline Qantas. Qantas customers can take advantage of an “Add to Passbook” button when they receive digital boarding passes. As such, passes can be stored within the Passbook application, and scanned upon arrival at the departure airport.
Virgin Atlantic is the second. Finally a UK-based airline which make boarding cards available through Passbook. However rather than update its rather poor app, users will be able to add a Passbook ticket to their iPhone or iOS device during the online check-in process.
When you check in at the Virgin Atlantic website, you’re given the option to send your boarding pass to Passbook. Choose that option and you receive an email with a Passbook attachment.
Open the attachment and the boarding card with all your details and a QR code – a square barcode – is loaded into the Passbook app, allowing you to bypass check-in at the airport and go straight to either dropping off your bags or, if you only have hand luggage, through security. At the departure gate, Virgin staff scan the QR code, and it’s up, up and away. Passbook stores the boarding card data in an industry standard barcode which can be scanned and read at departure gates at all Virgin Atlantic UK departure airports – Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester.

Now the following airlines support the ability to store your boarding pass in Passbook:

Air Canada
American Airlines
ANA *domestic flights only
Lufthansa
Malaysian Airlines
Porter Airlines
Qantas
Turkish Airlines
United
Virgin Australia
Virgin Atlantic
