Virgin Australia offers mobile boarding passes
Virgin Australia has unveiled two online initiatives – a new ‘Flight Specials’ app and mobile boarding passes for domestic flights.
Available now from the App Store, the ‘Virgin Australia Flight Specials’ app for iPhone offers the latest flight specials and ‘happy hour’ fares for Virgin Australia domestic and international flights. It also enables users to sign-up for alerts so that they are notified when a flight special matches their criteria.
Virgin Australia has also launched mobile boarding passes for domestic flights. The check-in feature from the Virgin Australia mobile website will send passengers their boarding pass as an SMS to allow for mobile boarding. The mobile boarding pass can then be presented at the departure gate to board the flight.
Virgin Australia’s Group Executive of Brand & Customer Experience, Mark Hassell said; “Virgin Australia is investing in mobile technologies in order to provide a more seamless travel experience for guests, along with the ease and convenience of accessing our services from a mobile device.
“Our new app for iPhone links seamlessly to new features on the Virgin Australia mobile website, taking guests through every stage of the travel journey. For guests with carry-on luggage only, this means the ability to skip the check-in counter and board the flight simply by scanning their smartphone at the gate,” he added.
