ATOS Origin
: 28 October, 2008  (Special Report)
Atos Worldline, an Atos Origin Company, has won the 2008 Innovation Award in the « mobile & new technologies solutions » for its innovative paperless tickets solution delivered via mobile phone and developed for Air France KLM.
The awards were organized by Orange Business Services and Syntec Informatique in partnership with French business daily La Tribune. This new mobile boarding passes solution offers Air France KLM an innovative alternative to hard tickets for its customers on the move.

The 2008 awards ceremony took place in Paris on October 22nd during the IP Convergence event. The Innovation Awards are designed to promote future-facing solutions and innovative new uses emerging from the ever-deeper convergence between information systems and telecommunications. Atos Worldline implemented a comprehensive project for Air France KLM, involving the design, development and operation of the mobile website and the messaging platform (SMS, mobile e-mail and MMS).

To access the service, passengers need simply to log onto Air France KLM Internet mobile websites, from which they have the possibility to check in, receive a boarding pass and access the full range of services via mobile phone. They can get real-time information on their flights, flight schedules, Flying Blue account and more. The service gives travellers greater freedom thanks to 24/7 access and makes Air France KLM’s check-in management more flexible and responsive.

“Winning this award is a recognition of the expertise of our teams in the research and development of leading-edge solutions that support and advance our clients’ businesses,” said Didier Dhennin, Atos Worldline CEO. 'This innovative approach has enabled us to support Air France KLM’s commitment to continuous innovation.”

'We are delighted to receive this prize together with Atos Worldine. Their in-depth understanding of our business has helped us to position ourselves as forerunners in paperless ticketing,” declares Philippe Roux, Marketing Director Air France KLM.

As from September 4th 2008, Air France KLM are launching electronic boarding passes on mobile phones. The only paper document needed to board is personal ID. This new paper-free service will initially concern passengers travelling on the 15 daily flights connecting Paris-CDG (terminal 2F1) to Amsterdam-Schiphol, in both directions.
