    Boarding passes via Blackberry?!

    Advertisement



    Continental Airlines passengers in Houston will be able to board flights using just a cellphone or personal-digital assistant instead of a regular boarding pass in a three-month test program launched Tuesday at Bush Intercontinental Airport. The program could expand to airlines and airports nationwide.

    Instead of a paper pass, Continental Airlines (CAL) and the Transportation Security Administration will let passengers show a code the airline has sent to their cellphone or PDA.

    The two-dimensional bar code, a jumble of squares and rectangles, stores the passenger's name and flight information. A TSA screener will confirm the bar code's authenticity with a handheld scanner. Passengers still need to show photo identification. The electronic boarding pass also works at airport gates.

    Supposedly Southwest has been doing this out of Love Field in Dallas, TX for about a month but I can't find any info online to confirm what I have been told here in person. Surprised that they didn't point out the paper savings to attract the environmentalists on this process.

    Not a big fan of Continental Airlines...I'd really like to see this for Southwest Airlines and United!

    If you accidently erase your message or forget your BB just head straight to the ticket counter. They can issue you a paper boarding pass to get through security. Or you can print one yourself from your airline's website.

    As long no one loses their ID or phone or even worse, has them stolen, then it sounds good to me.
