Dubai International Airport Introduces Smartwatch App

Any clients heading to Dubai International Airport who possess a smartwatch can now have timely, important travel information delivered to them on their smartwatch following the launch of a new service integrating the gadget with the airport’s popular smartphone app – and is available on iOS and Android.

An extension of Dubai Airports’ mobile app, the smartwatch app provides travellers quick and easy access to the latest status of their bookmarked flight – showing the user their current flight status, the actual arrival or departure time, terminal, gate or baggage belt information in one glance.

“This development is part of an ongoing series of digital initiatives at Dubai Airports that are aimed at enabling easy access to personalised information that allows our customers greater freedom to plan their journey and make the most of their time at the airport,” said Matthew Horobin, Head of Digital Media, Dubai Airports. “It’s a service that will find appreciation among the increasing number of travellers that are now smartphone and smartwatch users.

“As part of the first phase of the project, the smartwatch app currently provides customers access to only the most important information related to their flight. There are plans to make the app more interactive while also widening its functionality to include wayfinding and commercial offers from food and beverage and retail outlets across the airport.”

The app has been developed by Dubai Airports in conjunction with Amsterdam-based M2Mobi.
