A new passport scanning function has been added to easyJet’s mobile app.
It enables passengers to scan passport details using their mobile phone camera making it quicker and easier to check in.
The budget carrier claims to be the first European airline to have such a feature on its app, which has been downloaded more than 10 million times.
The airline’s head of digital James Millett said: “Our new mobile passport scanning function will save time for the millions of customers who use the app to input their travel documentation details.
“We’ve developed the new function in partnership with credentials management company Jumio to ensure details can be scanned in easily, safely and securely.
“Combined with our mobile boarding passes customers can now check in on their mobiles up to two hours before flights in 110 of the airports easyJet fly to across Europe.“
The latest mobile initiative follows a partnership with flightradar24 to track flights on the move as well as a live update system to connect with travellers.
