Some airlines start using Passbook for iOS
It has not yet reached iOS 6 , and therefore has not come either Passbook , an application that lets you collect discount coupons, prepaid cards, delta extranet airline tickets etc. that, using the ‘geo-fences’ location or a programmed announcement to a Determined time, appear before we need it; For example, if we have a Starbucks discount coupon, as we approach a store in this chain of cafes, the coupon appears on the lock screen automatically. In the same way, our boarding card of an airplane ticket that we have bought online, when we approach the Airport can appear. It is one of the most notable features of the new version of the iPhone operating system that we will probably all be able to install sometime this month.
What we see in the image above is a capture of a web page that has made Shaun Lorrain, a passenger of the airline Virgin Australia that has installed one of the Beta versions (unfinished, for developers to test) of iOS 6;When you visited the company’s website with your iPhone, it offered to save the boarding card you had purchased in your Passbook library, automatically.
This means that some airlines are already preparing their websites to sell airline tickets to support this feature, which will certainly make it much more comfortable to buy your tickets on an iOS device like an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad – the only thing there is What to do when we get to the Airport is to look at the lock screen, where we should see the notification of the boarding card waiting. With it, we are scanned the two-dimensional code that appears on the screen and we can get on the plane.
