Doha: Air passengers flying out of Qatar can now have a "paperless" travel experience as the Emirates airline is now offering them the option of receiving their boarding passes on internet-enabled mobile phones.
The mobile boarding pass can be scanned and read directly at all check-in counters, airport security check points and boarding gates in Doha. The service is available to all passengers who utilise Emirates' online check-in facility out of Doha. Passengers can log on to www.emirates.qa and can choose to receive by e-mail or SMS a web-link to their mobile boarding pass. The link displays a bar-coded boarding pass on their internet-enabled phones.

"The mobile boarding pass makes a small step towards reducing our environmental impact," he said.
Convenient, straight-forward and secure, customers may also use their internet-enabled mobile devices to perform a multitude of tasks like booking and managing a flight, mobile check-in, searching flight schedules and passenger status. Passengers can even check the in-flight amenities available on a specific flight....more
