10 Airlines now compatible with Apple's Passbook

Passbook enabled airlines

Think back to a few months ago—to September 2012, to be specific.This was the month of the Apple keynote announcing iOS6, the iPhone 5 and the glorious little app addition named "Passbook." Simply put, Passbook neatly collects all the little virtual ticket stubs which before resided within their own individual apps.

Now your Starbucks card info for coffee today can live in harmony (and very easy access) with your movie ticket for tomorrow and boarding pass for next week. A doff of the cap to American Airlines, United and Lufthansa, the first airlines to support mobile boarding passes within Passbook.

Now that everyone has had a few more months to send their tech teams into overdrive, the total number of Passbook-positive airlines stands at 10, with still more on the way.

Who's hip to it:

· Air Canada *new this month
· American Airlines
· ANA *domestic flights only
· Lufthansa
· Malaysian Airlines
· Porter Airlines
· Qantas *new this month
· Turkish Airlines *new this month
· United
· Virgin Australia

Coming soon: British Airways and Delta. According to TUAW, British Airways are looking to add Passbook "as soon as [they] can." Delta, on the other hand, despite being featured in the Apple keynote regarding Passbook, still hasn't managed to push out their Passbook compatibility. The last Delta app update came in June 2012.

In order to add an upcoming flight on one of the above airlines to your Passbook, make sure you're running iOS 6. Login to your account on the airline's app or, for a few, there's a link on your emailed flight confirmation that lets you automatically send it to Passbook.

KoenBeste trapple, Heb sinds kort een one plus 3t met android versie 7. Als ik in de standby app een datum wil selecteren dan sluit de app zich. Daarna moet je alles weer invoeren oftewel de app is niet te gebruiken. Groetjes, Koen Schimmel11 Feb 2017 - 11:17
