Text means less queueing before take-off

Low fare airline Jetstar is about to trial a world-first mobile phone technology that issues boarding passes via SMS. In a bid to reduce check-in times and long queues, the SMS "passes" can be scanned electronically from the phone's screen at the departure gate.
The SMS boarding pass was developed during the past six months by the Sissit Group, which was set up in Melbourne in early 2008 to work on airport immigration and other services.
