Report: Airline passengers prefer paper over mobile for boarding

Technology makes many aspects of traveling easier but most people still prefer to present a printed boarding pass when checking in at airline gates, according to surveys conducted by GO Airport Express, a Chicago-based ground transportation service and GO Airport Shuttle, an international transportation provider.

Of the 375 respondents, 65 percent said they present a printed boarding pass instead of a QSR code or other electronic documentation via phone or other mobile device.

At 37 percent, men were slightly more likely than women (35 percent) to use mobile.

GO Airport Express, one of the oldest companies in Chicago, traces its founding to 1853 and the Parmelee Transportation company, which provided a carriage service between Chicago´s railroad stations and the downtown hotels. The GO Group LLC is the nation´s largest airport transportation provider, serving some 60 airports in North America, Mexico, the Caribbean and Europe and transporting more than 13 million passengers per year.
