Seven years thereafter, the airline continues to introduce technological innovations to improve its passengers’ travel experience. From checking-in with a smartphone, tablet or smartwatch to tracking real time information of a flight, Vueling´s goal is to make flying more efficient and hassle-free to its passengers.

Vueling was the world’s first  airline to launch a “wearable” boarding pass, as lodged in the Sony Smartwatch 2. Its Flight Status Manager app enables customers to check real-time departures and arrivals of all Vueling flights. The contactless payment system automatically registers customer identification and payment data via scanning and NFC systems. The fast and secure Apple Pay payments system is available to Vueling app users in the UK. The mobile app’s “Bring Your Flight Forward” function facilitates bookings of earlier flights and even issues virtual boarding passes for the new flight.
