Emirates launches booking app for iPhone
ETW Staff- Mumbai
Building on the successful launch of The Emirates app for iPad earlier this year, Emirates airline has now increased its mobile presence with the launch of The Emirates App for iPhone on the App Store.
The Emirates App for iPhone has enhanced features such as the ability to check-in and download their boarding pass directly to Passbook.
The App also features push notifications for check-in, flight boarding, gate changes, and baggage belt numbers, greatly improving the travel experience by proactively alerting customers to critical travel information. Customers can directly download the app or visit the App Store and search for ‘Emirates’.
Passengers 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, credit cards information, and product and service information are stored in the app, so users can view it offline too.
Boutros Boutros, divisional senior vice president- corporate communications, marketing and brand, Emirates, said, “There is no doubt that our customers increasingly want to use their mobile devices and tablets to book and manage their travel. The Emirates App has been designed to address their needs, and make it easier and more convenient to interact with Emirates via their mobile devices. We have seen tremendously positive response to both our iPad and iPhone apps to date. iPhone represents the majority of the mobile traffic to our web sites, and therefore we have launched on iOS first. Work is underway for an Android version, even as we continue to look at new features for our iPad and iPhone apps.”
