Starting May 15, Dubai’s Emirates will require most passengers departing the emirate to use a mobile boarding pass instead of a printed paper version, the airline announced on Friday.
Passengers checking in at Terminal 3, will receive their boarding passes via SMS or e-mail. Those who check-in online can add their mobile boarding pass into their Apply Wallet or Google Wallet as well.
Passengers can also retrieve their boarding passes via the Emirates mobile app, where they can also find their checked-in baggage receipt. An e-mailed version will also be sent to passengers.
The pass can be further used at Dubai Duty Free, for security checks, and for boarding by simply showing the QR code on the mobile pass.
Emirates agents and airport staff will scan the code as passengers move through the airport and onto the plane.
However, some passengers may still require a physical boarding pass to be printed.
