boarding pass

FRANKFORT, Ky. (8/17/13) – Boarding your flight from Paducah’s Barkley Regional Airport just got easier, with the arrival of new mobile boarding pass scanner this week.

The scanner, which goes into use today, allows passengers to scan in their mobile boarding passes which are available as part of the free United App that the airline offers. Passengers who book online can also have a mobile boarding pass emailed to them to access from their mobile device, so they can utilize the scanner as well.
“The arrival of this scanner is just another way we make flying out of Paducah more convenient,” said Airport Marketing Director, Eddie Grant. “Passengers with no checked luggage or just a carry-on can go right from their cars through security to the gate, just by scanning their mobile boarding pass.”
Grand added that passengers that need to check their luggage will still have to go to the counter first to do so before passing through security and scanning their boarding pass. These passengers will need to allow enough time to do that before the ticket counter closes, 30 minutes prior to each flight’s scheduled departure.
Any mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets and notebooks can be scanned, and passengers themselves will be doing the scanning.
Once the barcode on the pass is read, the passengers’ name, date and flight number will show up on a screen visible to a TSA agent. If the name matches one on their photo ID and the flight information is correct, they will be able to proceed to the gate area.
Only information for flights from Paducah to Chicago will be recognized, so if a passenger accidentally scans the pass for their connecting flight, the scanner won’t read it. After they scan their pass they will still need to put their mobile device in the bin to be x-rayed as they pass through the remainder of the security checkpoint.
United Airlines provided the scanner to TSA and Barkley Airport as a part of their effort to improve customer service, and streamline the boarding process.
More information about the scanners, as well as other news and information regarding Barkley Regional Airport, can be found online at, or on Facebook and Twitter.
