Southwest has launched the use of Mobile Boarding Pass, an electronic document that enables Customers to pass through security and board the aircraft just by using their mobile device.
Mobile boarding passes are now available at all U.S. airports Southwest serves. They’re not currently available to Passengers travelling on international flights.
Using a mobile boarding pass is easy:
- Check in for your flight at least one hour before your scheduled departure.
- During check-in, select how you’d like to receive your mobile pass: email, text message or view in browser.
- Save the pass to your device.
- Present your mobile pass at security checkpoints and during boarding
Southwest for Android was just updated last week, and hopefully other airline apps will soon add support for this convenient new feature.
