A spokesperson of Iberia said that a feature is being developed by Samsung which will enable passengers to directly download their boarding pass to their Samsung Gear 2 smartwatch. The air travelers instead of making frantic search of their boarding passes in their carry-on bags will be just required to flash their smartwatches in front of the scanners.`

This will prove to be beneficial to the passengers as they will be able to automatically download their boarding passes to their Samsung Gear 2 smartwatches when using their smartphone for check-in.
