Airline KLM has announced it is to introduce the opportunity for its passengers to receive boarding passes on their mobile phones.

According to Boarding.no, the new service will be available on flights between Amsterdam and Paris first, with a view to introducing it elsewhere if it is successful.

Passengers will be able to receive a secure barcode to their mobile phone, which is then scanned at the boarding gate, as well as being used for the baggage lounge and airport shops.

Martijn van der Zee, vice-president of e-commerce at KLM, said: “Our customers increasingly want to be in control of their time. The electronic boarding pass fulfils this desire perfectly It is a new step in smooth and hassle free travelling.”

KLM is the world’s oldest airline and operates flights to Cape Town, Johannesburg, India and Dubai, among other destinations.

It claims to have some 30,000 employees worldwide and merged with Air France in 2004.
