How much do you use mobile apps when buying airline tickets? Applications no longer sell tickets only. They have almost become ’travel assistants’. Everything from booking to baggage can be done through the application.
Our smart mobile phones have been replaced by computers or cameras. Mobile applications are also everywhere. At the beginning of the intensive use, air ticket sales are coming. Every year, millions of passengers buy their tickets from mobile applications. If you try it at least once, you may be get addicted and start tracking everything related to your journey via applications.
More than half of check-ins are by mobile
The most intensive phase of use, reservation and price tracking. According to SITA, which develops information technologies for the sector, 85 percent of the users launch the mobile application for this purpose. Check-in issue is in the second place. 54.5 percent of check-in is carried out with mobile application. Passengers pass through the security check, showing the mobile code and their identities. This is that simple. The luggage tag is at the third place with 48 percent. The check-in and the luggage label are also created by the application. Excess baggage payments are made here. Another use is the rapid increase in the passenger’s baggage from the mobile application “self-drop” to be referred to the so-called points. If you make online check-ins, then you can just ‘self-drop’ you luggage and walk into the plane.
You can find your way at the airport, follow the changing door number and be aware of the promotions. You can also continue to use the airline’s own mobile applications in the airplane without paying a fee to the internet. Moreover, there are some apps to allow you to track the airplane while flying to the destination. Then if you are waiting for someone, you track him/her and then get know when they are landing to the airport.
