Mobile Boarding Pass

Mobile boarding passes are a convenient option for guests with internet-enabled mobile devices.

To access your mobile boarding pass, simply complete your online check-in at least three hours before departure using a mobile device.

Your pass can also be sent to your email address or stored on Passbook (for iPhone users). We also recommend taking a screenshot of the mobile boarding pass, as the 2D barcode will need to be scanned while you pass through the airport security and boarding gate.

Abu Dhabi (AUH) Colombo (CMB) Dammam (DMM) Doha (DOH) Dusseldorf (DUS)
