Looking for Airlines for NFC Boarding Pass Trials

Sept 17, 2014

As you know, SITA’s Boarding Pass API is using Host Card Emulation (HCE) to allow IATA standard boarding passes on Android phones to be transmitted to NFC compatible readers.

Our NFC boarding pass solution focuses on Card Emulation (ISO 14443) allowing Smartphones to act like contactless smart cards, in a similar fashion to plastic cards opening office doors, but with additional benefits.

We are currently looking for airlines to trial our Boarding Pass NFC implementation.

For further details, please contact the NFC Program Director, Stephane Gruber.
