Mobile Ticketing

Juniper released a report on Mobile Ticketing (PDF) today.

From the Report:

The International Air Transport Association plans to stop distributing paper tickets by the end of 2007. "It is not beyond the realms of possibility that e-ticketing will move to m-ticketing..."

Bryan Wilson, project director of e-ticketing at IATA: "There is no reason why a customer today should not be able to buy an e-ticket from a browser enabled mobile phone...After purchase, the passenger must be issued an e-ticket number which could be supplied by message to a phone."

Juniper forecasts mobile ticketing will contribute over $44billion of revenue by 2010.
