Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport has made traveling easier for those who are tech savvy.  Travelers flying with Delta Airlines, United Airlines or US Airways can ditch the paper boarding pass and utilize e-boarding passes on mobile devices. 

"Both business and leisure passengers today are looking for amenities that will make their travels simpler," said Toni Herrera-Bast, PR/marketing manager for the Birmingham Airport Authority.  "Mobile/e-boarding passes provide the convenience right at their fingertips."

Boarding passes will display a bar code that can be scanned at security checkpoints. Passengers still need to bring appropriate identification and follow TSA guidelines.

Not all airports are capable of processing mobile boarding passes -- travelers are urged to double-check their departing airport to see if they participate in the program before relying on an e-boarding pass. People should also make sure their devices are fully charged

For more information about the electronic boarding pass, you can contact your specific airline: US Airways, United Airlines or Delta.
