If you have an Apple or Android smartphone you can now board an easyJet flight from Gatwick with a mobile boarding pass.
The airline, which has been trialling mobile boarding passes at six airports (London Stansted, London Southend, Manchester, Edinburgh, Amsterdam and Nice), has now introduced the facility at Gatwick.
Peter Duffy, easyJet’s Marketing Director, commented: “More than six million people have now downloaded the easyJet app to buy flights and get the most up to date information about their travel. Giving passengers the option of mobile boarding pass technology is another way for us to make flying with easyJet as easy as possible.”
Using the easyJet app, passengers can book flights and add mobile check-in and boarding passes so there’s no need to print any paperwork. The process has been designed to be as clear and simple as possible – passengers can see their status as ‘checked-in’ or ‘not checked-in’ and boarding passes are stored offline once downloaded, so that they can be accessed without incurring roaming charges or needing network coverage as early as 30 days ahead of the flight’s departure or as little as two hours before.
