Qantas eases travel to New Zealand with Digital Boarding Pass

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Qantas Digital Boarding PassesQantas has introduced mobile check-in and digital boarding passes for customers travelling between Australia and New Zealand. The technology is being rolled out as part of the airline’s strategy to speed up the journey through the airport for customers travelling internationally.

Until now, customers travelling across the Tasman were typically required to queue up for a printed boarding pass. The new technology allows eligible customers travelling between Australia and New Zealand to finalise check-in and passport checks online and head straight to the lounge or boarding gate after passing through immigration and security – all with the digital boarding pass on their mobile device.

The offering will be initially made through web and mobile (Qantas.com) before being extended to the Qantas app in June 2017. From this time, Qantas will also look to extend the service from its trans-Tasman routes to other destinations on its international network.

It comes shortly after Qantas gave its backing to Australian and New Zealand government efforts to streamline border processing for customers travelling across the Tasman, calling for a renewed effort to make the experience more like domestic air travel.

Qantas International and Freight CEO Gareth Evans said, “Seamless domestic travel has been a reality since Qantas pioneered smart check-in technology in 2010, but the barriers have always been a lot higher for international flights.”
