Bmi extends mobile boarding passes

12 Feb 2009 by Mark Caswell

Bmi passengers
can now have boarding passes sent to their mobile phones for all UK domestic
flights departing Heathrow.

The service
follows successful trials during 2008 (see online news June 1, 2008), and means
that paperless boarding is now available on flights out of Heathrow to Aberdeen, Belfast City, Dublin, Durham Tees
Valley, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Jersey, Leeds Bradford and Manchester. The service
is also available on flights departing Belfast, Edinburgh and Manchester
for Heathrow.

Customers can request boarding
passes to be sent to their mobiles during the online check-in process, up to 24
hours in advance of the flight.

Several airlines have
recently launched mobile boarding pass initiatives, including Lufthansa which
now offers its customers this service on flights out of Heathrow and regional UK
airports.

Bmi this week also
announced the introduction of complimentary chauffeur drive services for
business class passengers travelling on selected routes to Saudi Arabia and Russia (see online news February
9
).
