Conservative estimate? One in three airline boarding passes via mobile by 2019
More than 1.5 billion boarding passes will be delivered to mobile devices by airlines within four years, a new study has suggested.
Juniper Research claims the 2019 figure will be double the number estimated for 2015 at 745 million worldwide.
One and a half billion will be approximately a third of the total number issued to passengers by carriers around the world.
But with smartphone penetration increasing, plus airlines and online travel agencies continuing to push their mobile services, perhaps one in three is a little on the conservative end of the forecast spectrum.
