United Will Now Issue Partner Boarding Passes on its App

Article By:

United announced a major improvement to its mobile app today. Passengers traveling on United with a connection on one of 19 partner airlines will receive the partner airline boarding pass on their phones. This functionality is a first for any U.S. carrier. The mobile boarding passes will initially be available for the following partners:

United expects to add additional partners in the future. This is a terrific addition to the United app as you’ll no longer have to visit an airport counter to collect a boarding pass. That said, it’s still best to have a physical copy of your boarding pass in case your frequent flyer miles don’t post for your flight. But this way, at least you won’t have to rummage around your bags for your physical ticket and can just scan your phone to board.
