From today, you'll be able to get electronic boarding passes on your phone when leaving Australia
The changes mean that passengers catching international flights will be able to show their boarding pass on a mobile device.
The announcement follows several trials, and it's hoped the changed will help navigating airports become a little bit more efficient, Citizenship and multicultural affairs minister Alan Tudge said.
“These increasing volumes mean we are always looking for ways to clear legitimate travellers efficiently and seek out those of interest to law enforcement,” the minister said.
“This change will cut out the need to visit the check-in desk to show your passport and collect your paper boarding pass.”
Mobile boarding passes complement the government’s Seamless Traveller push. 73 per cent of travellers departing from Australia are currently processed through SmartGates.
