Despite being known for low-cost flights, Easyjet often leads the pack when it comes to taking the hassle out of travel. While you can already book a flight using its apps, the airline today announced a new upgrade that will let you check-in by simply taking a photo of your passport. Where before you'd need to manually enter your passport number into the Easyjet website, the new iOS and Android apps (with backing from validation specialist Jumio) now let you automate the process up to 2 hours before you take off from one of 110 Easyjet airports. That means you can now book, check-in and board your flight all via your phone -- helpful if you're itching to get some sun now that autumn is well and truly here.
