British Airways’ iPhone app has finally been updated to include Passbook support. Having been working on it for what seems like an age, the newest version of the app will now allow passengers to download boarding passes and present them using Apple’s digital voucher wallet.
Development isn’t stopping there, as the company also plans to implement a feature allowing users direct access to passes from the Lock Screen.
By mid June we’ll be enhancing Passbook boarding passes by adding direct links to them from your iPhone’s lock screen as you’re ready to fly. This will make it even easier for you to access your boarding pass on the move. We’ll send you a message via the app as soon as these are enabled.
The app is available to download now for free, and is compatible with all iPhones from 3GS and later as long as you’re running iOS 5.0 or later.
