AEGEAN’s digital wallet gov.gr will be made more interoperable with customers’ digital IDs, available in a new mobile application to advance on the Ministry of Digital Governance recently announced ambitions to store a digital version of ID documents on smartphones.
AEGEAN and OLYMPIC domestic flight passengers can add their digital ID on their mobile boarding pass after check-in and personal details sections are completed.
The “Digital ID” service is available through the the AEGEAN App and interconnected with the established Gov.gr Wallet.
Dimitris Gerogiannis, CEO of AEGEAN announced: “We are very pleased with this new digital service that we can offer to our passengers, thanks to the new digital possibilities provided to everyone by the gov.gr platform. An idea that was envisaged right after the announcement of the ability to store a digital version of the ID documents on smartphones by the Ministry of Digital Governance and was implemented, thanks to the excellent cooperation of a joint AEGEAN and the Ministry team. The integration of the digital ID in the boarding pass, in a fast and secure way, is part of a series of new services that we have developed in the last two years to accelerate travel experience. We thank the team of the Ministry of Digital Governance for the excellent cooperation and the opportunity they gave to all of us, through the applications they have developed the last few years, to make the boarding process even easier and faster, both for our passengers and for the ground services”.
