In May, popular European discount airline easyJet announced that it was testing Passbook ticketing support at six airports in Europe, with support to come from more airports if the trial was found successful. And judging by today’s easyJet app update, it looks like that’s the case. Now the company is offering Passbook ticketing support at a whopping 75 airports in Europe.

This is significant because easyJet is one of the most popular discount airlines. Passbook-supported apps have been slow to catch on outside of the US (and even inside the US).

But Passbook support isn’t the only thing new in the latest easyJet update. Check out the other goodies and the release notes below:
