KLM introduces mobile boarding pass

Dutch airline company KLM is introducing a boarding pass by SMS or MMS.  For the past 6 months, tests were done on flights between Amsterdam and Paris.  Starting March 10th, it will be possible on nearly every European flight to use a PDA or smartphone at the check-in.

Passengers have to check in on the Internet. They then receive a barcode on their mobile device, which is scanned at the airport. Combined with a valid passport, this code gives access to the airplane.  Mobile devices that accept MMS can receive the code as an image.  Smartphones such as the iPhone and Blackberry, can get the code in their e-mail.
