British Airways launches iPhone check-in app

British Airways (BA) has launched an iPhone app to allow its passengers to replace physical tickets and boarding passes with a virtual alternative and speed up the check-in process.

The Mobile Boarding Passes app displays a unique barcode on the iPhone's screen, which can be scanned at the airport to let you breeze through to your seat when you get to the gate.

The software also allows users to gain access to a decent array of additional information, including the right check-in times and the expected departure and arrival times of a given flight, with updates making sure that the information is accurate.

BA's app is initially only available to passengers travelling between Heathrow and Edinburgh, although by September it will be compatible with every domestic service that the carrier operates.

To take advantage of Mobile Boarding Passes, iPhone users must be a member of BA's Executive Club.
