Air Berlin: electronic boarding pass on your smartwatch

Paper boarding passes at airports have their days numbered. Comfortable, fast and in line to reduce cost in cheap flight companies.

The Air Berlin airline with an IOS app already allows you to display boarding passes and flight information on your smart watch (SmartWatch).

You can show your card in the style of a QR code on your wrist when boarding. The system will confirm your seat and flight information as soon as it has been scanned. This system eliminates the need to pull out the phone and queue at the door.

Air Berlin is the second airline to offer this service.

Earlier, airline Vueling partnered with Sony to add this kind of functionality with a boarding pass for the SmartWatch 2 last month - and it is hoped that airlines around the world will follow this approach.
