Mid-September Apple rolled out a new ‘digital wallet’ feature for Passbook with the new iPhone 5 and iOS6 operating system. The wallet is “capable of storing boarding passes, movie tickets and membership cards. Passbook is designed to centralize the storage and accessibility of these items from a single program managed directly built into the operating system (OS), which eliminates the need for the user to drill into individual apps (or e-mails) to find the relevant pass or coupon for the situation or transaction. Passbook is supported by iPhones dating back to iPhone 3GS.”

Eight airlines, among which American Airlines, United Airlines and Lufthansa are adopting the wallet feature of Passbook to automatically transfer the boarding pass after the passenger completes the mobile check-in procedure. Delta Airlines and Malaysian Airlines will follow shortly.
