EasyJet’s Mobile App adds new Passport Scanning Technology

Last updated:

easyJet, the UK’s largest and one of Europe’s leading airlines, has today launched a new passport scanning function to its award-winning mobile app, making it the first European airline to have such a feature.

easyJet’s app, which has been downloaded over 10 million times to date, now enables customers using an iOS or Android device to scan their passport details using their mobile phone camera making it quicker and easier to check in.

James Millett, easyJet’s Head of Digital, 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. It’s another example of innovating to make travel as easy as it is affordable with easyJet.”

“We’ve developed the new function in partnership with credentials management service 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 2 hours before flights in 110 of the airports easyJet fly to across Europe.“

easyJet’s mobile app is now available to download and was recently awarded ‘Best Mobile Booking Solution’ at the Mobile Travel and Tourism Awards 2014, and ‘Best B2C App’ at the Marketing on Mobile Awards last year.
