A mobile boarding-pass reader has gone into operation at Charleston's Yeager Airport.
It allows travelers to scan smartphone images of the bar code for their boarding passes at the Transportation Security Administration gate, dispensing with the need to carry paper boarding passes or have them printed at the check-in counter.
So far, the service that began Sept. 5 is available only to travelers flying on United Airlines, but all carriers at the airport will be able to use the system once they link data to it and train employees in its use.
Yeager is one of the smallest airports in the nation now making use of mobile boarding-pass readers.
