Travelport has today announced the launch of a new travel application for users of iPhone and Android smartphones in the UK and Ireland. The new app represents the mobile debut of Travelport’s ViewTrip online itinerary product and is one of the first, fully integrated GDS powered travel itinerary apps available.
ViewTrip Mobile delivers time critical information and other tools to enable travellers to be fully aware and in control of their travel arrangements at any time. These include:
- Flight status with live flight alerts
- Detailed airport and city guides offering easy to digest information
- Location aware services – find offers on local restaurants, the location of your nearest bank, etc
- Weather forecasts and currency conversion
- Itinerary management – easily and quickly add other items to itineraries
The app will be available in other countries from Q2 2012 when the phased role out continues.
