Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, has extended its digital reach with the introduction of a new mobile application for Android smartphones, enabling guests to manage their journeys with even greater ease.
The new mobile app is simple and enjoyable to use, providing comprehensive trip management and giving guests the information they need in a way that suits them. Guests can now organise their journeys directly on the app, which includes booking flights, checking in for flights, securing a mobile boarding pass, checking flight status, or viewing their Etihad Guest miles balance. Additional key features include a simple flight search function, a credit card scanner for payments, a passport scan facility to check in, and improved flight seat maps.
Justin Warby, Vice President of Direct Sales for Etihad Airways, said: “This is a step forward in our innovation strategy to enable a convenient, more personalised digital travel experience. Our guests are central to how we develop these services, and their feedback has been important in the creation of this latest app. Technological innovation will be vital in the development of our industry, and as a leading airline, we want to be able to provide services that make travel simple for everyone.”
Khawla Ali Albadi, Head of Technology and Innovation at Etihad Airways, said: “Following on from the success of the iOS app earlier in the year, we’ve been keen to ensure we’re offering a full range of services to smartphone users. As part of the ongoing investment in the fleet and the work being delivered throughout the travel group, we will continue to develop additional digital products for the benefit of our guests.”
The new Etihad Airways app is available now to download via the Google Play Store. Etihad Airways guests will enjoy 10 per cent off flights by using promo code ‘ANDROID10’ and earn 250 miles, for every booking made through the mobile app before 30 November 2016.
