Google Pay is more than just a way to buy things in stores with your phone. It can store loyalty programs, gift cards, train tickets, and even plane boarding passes. Now the app supports boarding passes from Ryanair, a major Irish arline that mostly operates in Europe.
The Ryanair app now has a button to save your boarding pass to Google Pay. Once you press it, the ticket appears alongside your loyalty/gift cards in the Pay app. It's nice to see boarding pass support in Google Pay continue to expand to more airlines, hopefully, Google can keep up the momentum.
Lufthansa has also updated its Android app to allow you to save boarding passes in Google Pay.
*** Mobile Boarding Pass in Google Pay ***
From now on you can also add your mobile boarding passes to Google Pay.
Even more airlines are joining in. Air France and EasyJet both updated their apps to allow saving your boarding pass to Google Pay, and KLM reportedly did that too, though we don't see it in the app's changelog.
Alaska Airlines joins the Google Pay flight crew
The latest airline to add support for saving boarding passes to Google Pay in its app is Alaska Airlines.
Google Pay boarding passes are here! After you check in, tap on the “Save to phone” button to save your boarding pass to Google Pay. Then you can access your boarding pass from the Google Pay app or from lock screen notifications.
Make sure you're updated to the latest version of the app via the Play Store or by downloading it from APK Mirror.
