NCR Delivers Airline Passengers a Record 3 Million Electronic Boarding
Passes in March
New Ad Injection and Mobile Wallet Functions Make Mobile Boarding Passes More
Valuable to Airlines, Passengers
DULUTH, Ga. -- April 04, 2013
Air travelers continue to flock to the speed and convenience of mobile
boarding passes, pushing the number of mobile boarding passes delivered by NCR
Corporation in March to more than 3 million, a record number for the company.
“In addition to making traveling easier – allowing passengers to check in on
their own schedules, bypass check-in counter lines at the airport and go right
to the security check-point – there’s definitely a ‘cool’ factor to using
mobile boarding passes that’s exciting for travelers,” said NCR Travel Vice
President and General Manager Tyler Craig.
NCR Mobile Pass delivers a patented 2D bar code onto a mobile device, allowing
passengers to check in remotely and go directly to airport security
check-points when they arrive at an airport. Mobile boarding passes save
valuable time for passengers and free up airline staff to provide greater
assistance to those who might need it. NCR Mobile Pass technology is offered
by airlines across the globe.
The launch of NCR Dynamic Wallet and NCR Ad Injection functionality makes
mobile boarding passes even more useful.
With NCR Dynamic Wallet, information on passengers’ mobile boarding passes,
such as boarding gate and flight departure times, is updated in real time and
eliminates the need for travelers to check central flight information areas or
check flight status with airline agents.
NCR Ad Injection allows airlines to deliver messages to passengers via their
electronic boarding passes. These might include discount or upgrade offers,
advertisements for the airline or coupons for airport shops and restaurants. A
recent survey for NCR showed that 56 percent of travelers purchase things at
the airport and that almost 40 percent would be likely to buy more if they
received coupons or offers on their mobile boarding passes. For more

NCR will be highlighting its mobile boarding pass technology at the upcoming
Passenger Terminal Expo 2013, from April 9 - 11 in Geneva, Switzerland. For
