I heard this on the news this morning. I guess it's better than pay toilets.

Concert promoters and some movie theaters and sports teams have been doing this for a long time. A long time…

I think it is a good idea, I doubt it will offend passengers, and every cent of revenue these days is definately welcome.

What's new about this? I've seen ads on the back of boarding passes for years. I'd have to check which airlines when I get home, but the ones I can remember are Aerolineas Argentinas and Germanwings.
Will try to post a photo later.

All the things you probably hate about travelling are warm reminders that I'm home

I just flew back from Kiev with KLM, handled by swissport, and there was an advert for rental cars on the back of the boarding pass. First time ive noticed it however.



That'll teach you

Airlines have been putting ads on ticket jackets since before deregulation. This doesn't seem very different to me.

Delta airlines just got rid of the ticket jackets recently right? They should go the way of western pacific and paint ads on jets.

United also for quite a while had advertisments for NCL America on the back of their baggage tags (the ones applied by check in staff). Seems like a good idea to me.

It is new to U.S. airlines.

I could be wrong, but has this not been going on for YEARS. I can recall Hertz Ads on my KLM boarding passes from waaaaay back in the day.

Beyond that, in an age of online check-ins where people print their own passes surely the potential is not that great.

As of about four years ago, United had ads for their Mileage Plus Visa on the back of boarding passes. What's the big deal?


Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

Strange that some airlines seem to discover their ability to print ads on boarding passes at a time where other airlines try to get rid of boarding passes:

It has been done for many years in China.

I guess that's what they refer to when they talk about "socialism with Chinese characteristics".

They even printed ads on the back of their safetycards.

I think they still do. As recent as May on my last flight, the advertisement for their VISA card was still there.

AA Self-Service boarding passes for a while had Papa Romano's (or Papa John's?) pizza ads on the back of them (the stub part was also a coupon for free order of breadsticks); but lately, it's now advertising online flight status "Get the 411 on your 737!".. or something like that.

AA ticket jackets also had a hotels.com ad on the backside (as did many other US airlines) but now are AA.com related marketing item.

If I remember correctly SV have adverts on the back of their boarding passes.

Now that pax can print off their own passes at home I hope they won't have to see adverts on these too. I'll be putting in a bill for ink to the airline concerned if so.  Angry

On the back of an Ansett boarding pass in January 1991. An advert for Bull Computers. You can just make it out on the scanned boarding pass below (reversed, of course). Not going to the effort to scan it again right now.  Smile
