Passengers travelling on Cathay Pacific who check-in using the airline’s Online Check-In facility can choose to receive a boarding pass directly on their mobile devices via email or SMS text message, enabling them to have a completely paperless journey.

The image, which will be accepted as a bona fide boarding pass at the airport, will include a lounge invitation, if applicable, and details of how to proceed at the airport.

To date, this service has been available in 20 of Cathay Pacific’s ports. As of this week, with the introduction of the Mobile Boarding Pass service for passengers travelling from London to Hong Kong, this takes it to 21 ports.

Passengers who check-in online from London to Hong Kong with onward connections to other destinations can also use the Mobile Boarding Pass service and board flights.

Roberto Abbondio, Head of Sales and Marketing, Cathay Pacific, said: “We are delighted to bring the Mobile Boarding Pass service to customers departing from the UK. Offering a smoother experience when on the move, the online booking and online check-in service provides customers with added flexibility and convenience, as well as affording them a truly paperless journey.”
