Passbook was introduced some time ago, but up to now not many app developers have integrated their apps with the service, and in the UK you can only really view your Starbucks card or Odeon cinema tickets using the app.
Thankfully that’s all starting to change, as the budget airline Easyjet, have today announced that they have updated their Easyjet application on both Google Play and the App Store, to provide users with new mobile check-in and boarding pass features, allowing them to simply launch the app on the iPhone to check in at the airport.
The new service will start as a customer trial in the following airports, Amsterdam, Edinburgh, Manchester, Nice, Southend and Stansted, within which you can simply download your ticket onto your phone and use it at bag drop desks, security checkpoints, the gate, and when boarding the aircraft.
These can of course be added to Passbook if you are running iOS 6, but you will have to wait two hours to check in using them.
There’s currently no support for multiple boarding passes, but they say this will be available soon, as well as a mobile web version for Windows Phone and BlackBerry users.
