Emirates will start to roll-out Google Now cards for its passengers who book via Emirates.com. A feature of the Google Search app is available and fully integrated for Android (devices running Android 4.1 and above) and iOS (iPhones and iPads).
Some advantages of Google Now are:
- Gives users exactly the travel information they need, when they need it, with minimal effort spent searching
- App reminds passengers of their upcoming flight, providing flight times and departure terminal
- Gives passengers relevant information on their destination (e.g. weather conditions locally, currency, local landmarks, accommodation and attractions)
- Passengers will have information they need about the flight and destination delivered at the right place, right time, without having to ask or search
“Emirates prides itself on our constant innovation and working with technology partners that will enhance our passengers’ experience,” said Patrick Brannelly, Vice President Product, Publishing, Digital and Events, Emirates Corporate Communications, Marketing & Brand. “For users who book on Emirates.com, Google Now will allow us to deliver even more pre-flight information to our customers about their destination in a very user-friendly style and we hope our passengers find it of benefit.”
