Airlines have already begun supporting mobile boarding passes for Passbook ahead of the launch of iOS 6.

According to Australian Business Traveler, a reader was able to load his boarding pass into Passbook by checking into his Virgin Australia flight on an iPhone running iOS 6.

AusBT reader Shaun Lorrain checked in for a Virgin Australia flight using the airline's mobile website on his iPhone, which is running a developer preview edition of iOS 6 – and this is what he saw (see image below).

Yes, iOS 6 detected the mobile checkin and offered to save the boarding pass into Shaun's Passbook account.


The popup message came from the airline itself which means that airlines will be able to roll out support for Passbook as soon as they are ready.

Whats the point? only west jet support it with their own pass and then there is Air Canada who is stuck in the dark ages.. Pet Peeve.. 'express' check in.. whats the point? when you show up and the lines for those who did nothing, no check in NADA! lines are shorter than the express check in lines..

This is a crazy feature, but is anyone actually going to use this?

Definitely. I use the Starbucks app everyday. Can't wait to replace it with this and use it for boarding passes & tickets.

Awesome. This is going to be the most disruptive feature of iOS 6.
