Thursday, August 14, 2014

Montgomery, AL (Thursday, August 14, 2014) – Frequent fliers know the struggle of juggling a printed boarding pass, photo ID, and all of their bags as they approach the check in counter, security check point and at the gate to board. A new service from Delta Air Lines at The Montgomery Regional Airport now simplifies the boarding experience.

The Electronic Boarding Pass provides customers with the option to send and/or receive an electronic Boarding Pass to their mobile device through e-mail or text messaging. This will, in turn, allow customers to easily proceed through Airport Security Checkpoints and boarding validation at the gate.

The benefits of this include bypassing check-in lines, eliminating the need for a printer, making the boarding experience faster, more convenient and paperless!

“We are proud to offer electronic Boarding Pass service to travelers at the Montgomery Regional Airport. We are working to make the travel experience less stressful and more enjoyable and feel that this will make a significant positive impact on the customer experience,” said Chip Gentry, Vice President of Air Service Development for the Montgomery Regional Airport.

Delta Air Lines customers can begin using this service by completing the online check in process and selecting the option to have their boarding pass sent to their mobile device.
