Emirates airline has launched the Emirates App for iPad on the global App Store. Travel aficionados and those curious about the world, can now explore over 130 Emirates destinations on six continents, and learn more about Emirates’ services at a tap of a finger. Customers can directly download the App or visit the App Store and search for ‘Emirates’.
The Emirates App for iPad also makes it even easier for Emirates customers to manage every aspect of their booking. They can book flights, select seats and meals, manage their Emirates Skywards frequent flyer accounts, check in online, and download their boarding pass directly from the app, amongst other features. Personal flight details, product and service information are stored in the app, so users can view it offline too.
Patrick Brannelly, vice president, corporate communications, marketing and brand, product, publishing, digital and events, Emirates, said, “The Emirates app was designed for today’s new tribe of global travellers – what we term “globalistas” – who are curious about the world, are mobile and digitally connected, and expect simplicity at their fingertips.”
“In some markets, we already see about 20 per cent of visitors to emirates.com using iPads, and our customers are increasingly using their iPads and mobile devices to book and manage their travel. The app has been designed to make this process even easier, faster and significantly more convenient, and many more enhancements are already in development. We are now working to make the app available on the iPhone and Android, and will be introducing many new features in the coming months.”
