The budget carrier finally gets on board.

Tigerair Australia is allowing customers to use their mobile devices to book, check-in and board flights.

Passengers who check-in online before their flight can choose to receive a mobile boarding pass via email or SMS. These are scanned directly from customer devices prior to departure at the airport.

There's also an Apple iOS Passbook Wallet version of the mobile boarding pass for iPhone users.

The new mobile boarding pass service is timely, considering the summer travel season has just begun.

"For the first time, travellers can manage their entire Tigerair journey from the palm of their hand, thanks to the introduction of mobile boarding passes," Tigerair Australia commercial director Adam Rowe said.

"This important enhancement guarantees our customers have access to a seamless, integrated mobile experience from the time of purchase to boarding."

Tigerair continues to outperform local rival Jetstar in both on-time arrivals and departures.

Many Aussie airlines have stopped the pre-selection of travel insurance via online booking platforms.

Over the last 12 months discount airfare prices across Australia have decreased. Choosing the right time of day to fly can cut costs but early morning and late night flights are likelier to incur cancellations.
