Emirates launches mobile boarding passes

Emirates: The Airline of the Future
Emirates now offers Dubai passengers the option of receiving a mobile boarding pass on their internet-enabled mobile device.

The service is available to all passengers who use Emirates’ online check-in facility out of Dubai up to 24 hours in advance.

Passengers can log on to emirates.com, and can choose to receive a web-link to their mobile boarding pass by email or SMS, that displays a barcoded boarding pass on their phone.

“The launch of Emirates’ mobile boarding pass not only supports paperless travel and the reduction of paper waste, but also meets the demands of a new era of travellers, who seek a more sophisticated and efficient means of managing their business and leisure travel,” said Mohammed H Mattar - Divisional Senior Vice President Airport Services, Emirates.

“The mobile boarding pass puts flexibility and control completely in the hands of our customers, while making a small step towards reducing our environmental impact.” he added.

The mobile boarding pass can be scanned and read directly at all check-in counters, airport security check points, Dubai immigration, Emirates First Class and Business Class lounges, and boarding gates.

The service allows passengers to keep all their travel information in one place, while promoting paperless travel.

Following the launch in Dubai, over 30 other mobile boarding pass-compliant airports have been identified for implementation across the Emirates network.

Passengers can also use their internet-enabled mobile devices for flight bookings, mobile check-in, searching flight schedules and status and checking in-flight amenities available on a specific flight.

Once they log on to the airline’s website, they will be automatically redirected to the mobile optimised version.

Emirates is offering a 15% discount to select destinations during June.
Valid to over 30 select destinations, for passengers travelling in business and economy, the offer is available for bookings made up to June 20 and travel on or before August 31.
