Allegiant is now offering paperless mobile boarding pass capability to its passengers at all 101 airports it serves.
No matter where they are traveling, Allegiant passengers will now have the option to avoid ticket counter lines by checking-in for their flight and receiving their boarding passes directly on their mobile device.
“Allegiant continues to find innovative ways to create a faster, easier travel experience for our customers while at the same time reducing costs,” declared Andrew Levy, Allegiant Travel Company president and COO. “We're excited to bring mobile scanning technology to even the smallest airports in our network so that every Allegiant customer can benefit."
Allegiant worked with many small- to mid-size airports throughout its system to introduce mobile boarding pass scanners at the security checkpoints of all 101 airports the carrier serves. Of the airports Allegiant serves, 55 did not have scanners in place. Allegiant purchased scanners for these airports, worked with the airports and TSA to have them approved and installed, and contacted other carriers serving the airports to ensure that the scanners could be used by other airline passengers.
“Having mobile boarding passes enabled in all of the airports we serve has been a huge project, and we are very pleased to announce its completion,” remarked Scott Allard, Allegiant Travel Company chief information officer. “The introduction of these types of convenient, self-service technologies enables us to pass savings on to our customers and keep our fares lower than other carriers.”
