Passengers travelling on Lufthansa Group
airlines (Lufthansa German Airlines, Swiss International

aircraft without a printed paper boarding pass. If the gate

as Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea.
And for the whole of
October, a Lufthansa baggage tag will be given as a souvenir to
every passenger who boards the flight using mobile boarding pass
at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport.
