JETSTAR Asia today commenced a trial for the use of mobile boarding passes for its passengers departing Singapore, becoming the first LCC at Changi Airport to do so.
The mobile boarding pass, which uses a 2D barcode, is expected to be offered to passengers by end-October for straight-to-gate departure to most Jetstar destinations.
It is however, only available for selected flights with a 3K or VF flight code departing from Singapore only.
According to local broadsheet The Straits Times, the airline is the third to offer the service at Changi Airport, after Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific.
Jetstar Asia CEO, Barathan Pasupathi, said the mobile boarding pass is designed to make travel even easier and convenient for customers.
“Replacing paper boarding passes with a mobile boarding version will allow Singapore customers access to real-time updates on changes to flight schedules, gate information and seat numbers,” he said.
