Boarding with SMS on Jetstar

When you use web check-in you may be able to have your boarding pass sent as an SMS to your mobile phone. With the SMS there’s no need to print your boarding pass and you won’t have to visit the airport counter, simply print tags for any checked-baggage, drop them off and head straight to the boarding gate. Remember, checked-baggage must be dropped before check-in closes.

The SMS boarding pass is available to most passengers on a domestic flight within Australia, New Zealand or Japan. SMS boarding pass is available for groups of up to 10 passengers.

How to get your mobile boarding pass

Check in online between 48 hours and 60 minutes before your scheduled flight departure and select the mobile boarding pass option.

You’ll be sent an SMS. Use this as your boarding pass at the airport check-in kiosk.

Option 1
Group SMS for all passengers

We’ll send one SMS boarding pass for the group. Nominate the mobile phone number when you book or check in.

Option 2
SMS boarding pass for each passenger

We’ll send an SMS boarding pass for each passenger. If you have a group booking simply give each passenger’s mobile number when you book or check in.

Some passengers will receive an SMS containing a link. Use this link to download your boarding pass to your smartphone’s wallet or passbook app. Please note; this option requires a smartphone with an internet connection.


  • We recommend that you download your mobile boarding pass to your smartphone’s wallet app (or iPhone Passbook) before you get to the airport. Opening it on your smartphone’s browser will use data and require at least a 3G connection.
  • You should receive your mobile boarding pass within 30 minutes of checking in online. If you don’t receive it, please go to the web check-in page to download and print a PDF boarding pass. If this isn’t possible, head to the airport to complete your check-in and collect your boarding pass. Be sure to allow enough time to check in at the airport before your flight departs.
  • We are unable to resend a mobile boarding pass. If you delete the SMS or are unable to access your mobile boarding pass, you’ll need to go to web check-in and download and print a PDF boarding pass, or get your boarding pass when you check in at the airport.









Using your mobile boarding pass at the airport

When you get to the airport, if you have only carry-on baggage, go straight to the boarding gate. As you board, scan your SMS boarding pass in the scanner and print a boarding pass for each passenger.

Make sure that your carry-on baggage complies with our size and weight limits – if it exceeds them, additional charges may apply at the gate.
