Air Canada releases new mobile app
Air Canada of Montreal has released a new mobile application intended to be faster and more reliable. The app, available for Android and Apple devices, makes use of a new layout designed to be more intuitive to use. It is intended to provide assistance to consumers through the process of booking a flight to boarding the airplane. New features include interactive maps for the international airports in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. Other features include real-time upgrade and standby lists, inbound flight tracking, downloadable boarding passes and automatic flight notifications.
“Air Canada is focused on making travel easier and more comfortable for everyone, particularly through the use of the latest technologies,” said Mark Nasr, vice-president of loyalty and e-commerce at Air Canada. “Beyond the new features launching today, such as interactive airport maps with turn-by-turn directions for travellers, the new app provides the foundation necessary for future developments, most notably the launch of our new loyalty program in 2020. The app was designed and built entirely in Canada, in our digital labs enabled by the Air Canada technology team.”
