Checking in to your flight with an Apple Watch boarding pass is about to get easier for this British airline.
The next time you travel through Heathrow Airport, you can expect to see new Apple Watch-friendly barcode scanners aimed at making the check-in process easier.
On Tuesday, British Airways announced its plans for installing the new “Scan and Go” devices at Heathrow airport by Dec. 15. Customers will find the new scanners in Terminals 3 and 5.
Similar functionality is available from other airlines in the U.S., although scanning the boarding pass on an Apple Watch at the ticket counter is an awkward affair. Typically there’s no room to place your wrist underneath the scanner to get an accurate reading of the barcode.
