Atos Worldline, an Atos Origin company, is offering airline companies an innovative alternative to hard tickets for their customers on the move through its new mobile boarding passes solution. This paperless solution allows travellers to check in and receive a boarding pass directly on their mobile phones. A leading European airline company has already chosen Atos Worldline to design, develop and operate this service, the business claimed.
To access the service, passengers need simply to log onto the airline’s internet mobile website, from which they can check in, receive a boarding pass and access the full range of services via mobile phone. Users can get real time information on their flights, flight schedules, miles and more. The service gives travellers greater freedom thanks to 24/7 access and makes airline companies’ check in management more flexible and responsive, the business stated.
After completing the check in process, passengers receive a message with a 2D barcode directly on their handsets. The barcode serves as the boarding pass and can be read by both security and airport and airline scanning equipment.
Atos Worldline implemented a comprehensive project for a European airline company involving the design, development and operation of the mobile website and the messaging platform.
The Atos Worldline solution complies with International Air Transport Association (IATA) directives and helps further a sustainable development approach. It fits with Atos Origin’s strategy of innovation and paperless ticketing for the travel industry.
