Latest 10 airlines compatible with iOS Passbook

November 28, 2012

With Apple’s latest iOS 6, released in September this year, ‘Passbook’ has been the hype of every airline to add their virtual ticket stubs which before resided within their own individual apps.

American Airlines, United and Lufthansa were the first airlines to support mobile boarding passes within Passbook. Now, after over two months of the launch, the total number of Passbook-added airlines stands at 10, with still more on the way:

  • Air Canada (iTunes)
  • American Airlines (iTunes)
  • ANA (domestic flights only) (iTunes)
  • Lufthansa (iTunes)
  • Malaysian Airlines (iTunes)
  • Porter Airlines
  • Qantas
  • Turkish Airlines (iTunes)
  • United (iTunes)
  • Virgin Australia

Apple iOS Passbook
Next up are British Airways and Delta.

Delta was featured in Apple’s keynote, but has not yet pushed out Passbook compatibility. Whereas British Airways are looking to add Passbook “as soon as [they] can.”

So how do I use it, you ask? Firstly, make sure your iPhone is running on iOS 6 or upper. You will also need to install the individual airline app. In order to add an upcoming flight on one of the above airlines to your Passbook, login to your account on the airline’s app, then look out for a link that lets you automatically send it to Passbook.
