The bar code on your airline boarding pass has a wealth of information. Boarding Pass Scanner helps you to decode it quickly and easily.

Simply launch the application, click on "Scan Barcode," and point your camera at the 2D barcode on your airplane boarding pass. All the hidden details will be displayed in an easy-to-read format. Boarding Pass Scanner interprets the data so you can quickly see what's there. Other barcode scanning applications simply present the encoded text, requiring you to hunt through to find the information.

• Display the data from any standard airline boarding pass in an easy-to-read manner
• Easily track your flight status with no typing required
• Ensure your frequent-flier number is encoded so you get your miles
• Quickly share your flight information with friends and family via email
• Validate that your TSA Pre√ access is properly encoded in your boarding pass

If you are a frequent flier, you will find that this application comes in handy, especially during irregular operations, when your flight can change at a moment's notice. Scan the boarding pass and email it to colleagues, family, or friends so they have your updated flight information.

Note that although most airlines follow the barcoded boarding pass standard (we have successfully tested dozens of airlines, around the world), some airlines don't exactly follow the standard. As we identify them them, we continue update the app to support them. If you find a Boarding pass that doesn't properly decode, contact our support with a clear photo of your boarding pass, and we will add support for that airline.

-- Please note that this app does not change a paper boarding pass to a mobile boarding pass. Not all airlines support mobile boarding passes at all stations; please refer to your airline for more information on obtaining mobile boarding passes. This application presents the information encoded in a barcoded boarding pass for your inspection. --

What’s New

Version 1.5

We tracked down a few minor bugs, updated the app for newer versions of iOS and newer devices, and added compatibility for a few smaller airlines that use non-standard boarding pass formats.

If your boarding pass doesn't work, please email us with a clear picture of the bar code and we will update the app to be compatible. (As much as we love to fly, we don't fly every airline, and some airlines don't follow the standards for encoding data in the boarding pass). Thanks for your help in improving the app!

Not as advertised

DO NOT BUY!!! Does not give you flight times or flight status. I'm at the airport now and know there's a delay and was think "there has to be an app for that". This app is not it. Gives you your name, date of flight then a bunch of info that you won't care about, it's airline jargon and means nothing to us. So 99cents to tell me my name and date but no time or status of my flight. I want money back, DO NOT BUY!!!

Works as advertised

This app does exactly what it promises- reads a boarding pass barcode and decodes its information.

The other review complained about not showing up to date flight information. This is not what is on the ticket. The ticket has static information only

See what's on your boarding pass barcode

I bought the app just to see what personal data is contained in the barcode. There are concerns that thieves can obtain valuable personal information. On the down-side, the app quits after 15 seconds or so, very aggravating.
