Flight Updates and Reminders with Google Now

September 26, 2013

In keeping with the ‘right information at just the right time’ ideology, our Boarding Pass API includes a new feature to support Google Now, the personal intelligent assistant for Android and iPhone mobile devices.

Using this feature, your passengers can get real-time flight status information on the way to the airport or have their boarding pass displayed automatically at the appropriate time to help them sail easily through security and on to the gate. Google Now brings all the reminders and updates to the home or lock screen of the device, so passengers don’t even have to open the app.

The Google Now feature is simply activated by including a markup tag in the body of the Boarding Pass email template. Refer to the Boarding Pass API documentation for details of implementation at www.developer.aero.

Note: This feature isn’t available on the Boarding Pass Demo on developer.aero as it only works with valid flights. documentation page at
