Google Now Boarding Pass: with you in your travels

by: Jason GutierrezJanuary 15, 2013


Google Now has easily been one of the best features that have been introduced into the Android operating system. If you are lucky enough to be one of the individuals running Jelly Bean on your device, you’ve surely seen just how useful Google Now can be. As promised, new cards and features are being added to Google Now, and the most recent card will benefit the travelers among us.

Google Now will now fetch a digital boarding pass for you after checking into an airport online (for supported airlines of course). After checking in, you should receive an email with your flight information. Google Now will use this information and create your digital boarding pass complete with terminal, gate number, seat number, and a QR code that can be scanned by the airport. Keep in mind that the email must be sent to your Gmail account, and of course it wouldn’t hurt to have your paper boarding pass with you, as this is such a new feature.

Will you be using Google Now’s new boarding pass feature when traveling?

    While Google now is great. I’ve turned off most of the cards. It was a big battery ddrain.

    The last time I tried to use my phone for a boarding pass, the federal thugs, er, TSA, refused to allow it. They made me go back and get a paper pass. At least the flying public is now safe.
