Live updates will allow customers to enjoy a more seamless boarding process, reducing the need to rely on airport announcements and departure boards for the latest information about their flight. Those travelling without bags, can save time, check-in, and with a mobile boarding pass, head straight to the gate.

Customers will be notified of their boarding gate two hours before departure for all major Australian airports, with the exception of Sydney T3, where a push-notification will be sent 90 minutes prior to departure. To receive notifications, mobile or Wi-Fi internet connectivity must be available.

The Qantas passbook app is available to domestic Qantas customers who are eligible for mobile check-in, and is compatible only with iPhones operating on iOS 6 or above.
