Qantas adds live updates of flight details, delays, to Apple Passbook

By David Flynn, February 11 2013

IN BRIEF | Qantas has updated its Passbook mobile boarding pass system to include real-time notifications of changes to their flight.

Once you've completed mobile checkin for your domestic Qantas flight – sorry, this doesn't cover international services – and added the digital pass to your iPhone's Passbook app, you'll receive automatic alerts of delays and changes to the boarding gate.

These will appear as pop-up notifications on the iPhone's lock screen and home screen.

"Live updates will allow customers to enjoy a more seamless boarding process, reducing the need to rely on airport announcements and departure boards for the latest information about their flight" suggests the airline.

"Those travelling without bags, can save time, check-in, and with a mobile boarding pass, head straight to the gate."
