BMI launches text message ticket trial27 May 2008
Airline British Midlands (BMI) is trialling a mobile phone-based ticket system which could replace its print-at-home scheme if successful.
The text messages will display a barcode on the handset screen and will work only once to prevent unauthorised access to the boarding gate.
BMIâ€™s goal is to speed up boarding times for customers travelling without luggage.
The airline is using the paperless system on routes connecting London to Edinburgh, Manchester and Belfast City.
