Jet Airways today said it has partnered with the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) and Bangalore airport for a pilot project to test the use of mobile boarding passes on its flights.
During this trial phase, passengers can use barcoded boarding passes on their mobile phones to enter Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport (KGIA), pass through security and board their flight, the airline said in a release.
The project is being carried out on select Jet Airways flights from Bengaluru to Mumbai and Delhi on a trial basis since last week, it said.
This removes the need for paper boarding passes and fast tracks departure process.
As a part of the pilot project, airport operator Bangalore International Airport Limited has installed mobile boarding pass scanners at the entrance of the terminal and security check points as also at the boarding gates, it said.
The mobile boarding pass has been designed in-house by Jet Airways and follows all IATA standards and requirements, the airline said.
