Easyjet app update brings mobile boarding passes and Passbook support

Passbook enabled apps in the UK are still a rarity, but we can now add another one to the list. UK based low-cost airline, Easyjet, has updated their iPhone app bringing with it mobile boarding passes and Passbook support. This ties in with a new Easyjet initiative whereby all their airport check-in facilities are to be closed, and replaced by online check-in methods.

The mobile boarding passes are initially in a trial phase, with six airports -- those at Amsterdam, Edinburgh, Manchester, Nice, London Stansted and Southend -- taking part. Eventually this will likely increase pending a successful trial and the co-operation of the remainder of Easyjet's partner airports.

Online check-in can be done from within the app itself, or online, with a mobile boarding pass then downloading to your iPhone which you are able to add to Passbook. At present only one boarding pass is possible per device, though Easyjet does say that they're hoping to increase this very soon.
