Smart phone boarding passes
Airlines are scrambling to offer electronic boarding passes following Australian government authorisation for the process when boarding international flights.
International travellers departing Australia will now be able to check into their flights on their phones. The move, alongside digital recognition at immigration, will help speed travellers through airports.
The Department of Home Affairs has run several successful trials allowing travellers to use mobile boarding passes for international flights.
The department urges travellers to contact their chosen airline for more information on the change and implementation.
