TRAVELLERS? TECHNOLOGY: Emirates? Website goes mobile-friendly
Dubai-based Emirates has launched a version of its Website designed specifically for use with passengers’ own mobile devices – phones, BlackBerries, iPhones and other types of smartphone.
Travellers who access Emirates.com from a mobile are now being automatically redirected to the new version of the site. The facility is compatible with over 3,000 devices and is intended to allow passengers to interact with the airline from almost anywhere in the world. “Mobile Emirates.com gives our customers the flexibility to manage their journeys from the palms of their hands,” says Keith Longstaff, senior VP for commercial operations worldwide.
The mobile site has many of the most popular features and functions of Emirates.com, all formatted for mobile use. Visitors can check in online, select seats and meals book chauffeur-drive service, search for special fares, check real-time flight status and view global timetables.
Other information available includes news, descriptions of Emirates’ cabins and lounges, details of the products and services available aboard specific flights, and contacts for the airline’s offices worldwide. Members of the Skywards frequent-flier scheme can view airmiles balances and itineraries.
The mobile site will soon be offered in several languages besides English and with added functions, including online booking and expanded booking management capabilities.
