What is Boarding Pass?
Boarding pass is a document provided by airline companies during check-in. It is kind of permission for passengers to enter the restricted area of an airport and to board the plane for a particular flight. Airport staff can identify traveler’s journey details. It includes their identity, flight number, and the date and scheduled time for departure. If travelers are using the web check services then they can print the boarding passes themselves. A boarding pass is must for travelers to enter the secure area of airport.
Almost every airport has installed the automatic readers that can verify the validity of the boarding pass at the jet way door or boarding gate. The best thing about these automatic readers is that they can automatically updates the airline’s database that shows the passenger has boarded and the seat is used. Airline companies can also update the checked baggage information for that passenger. It helps the airline company to serve the customer better with luggage services. This helps to increase the work speed for the paperwork process at the gate, but requires passengers with paper tickets to check in, surrender the ticket, and receive the digitized boarding pass.
