Edinburgh Airport today (Friday) launches its new mobile app, developed to provide passengers with flight tracking, terminal and parking information – making it easier to travel to and through Scotland's busiest airport.
Travellers can get the Edinburgh Airport App free from the Android Market and iTunes App Store. The digital tool is also available on the Boingo Wireless internet portal at the terminal, and can be downloaded and used there without paying for internet access.
Features of the free-to-download Edinburgh Airport App include:
- Flight tracking for both in- and out-bound journeys
- Journey planner to and from the airport via public transport
- Integrated Google map with directions to the busy hub for drivers
- Comprehensive terminal map with hotspots for shopping and eating
Gordon Robertson, Head of Communications at Edinburgh Airport, said:
"The creation of the Edinburgh Airport App will help our passengers with their journey even before they set foot in the terminal. We're always looking for ways we can improve our travellers' experience and we're hoping the new Edinburgh Airport App will enhance their time at Edinburgh Airport. Its free use in the terminal thanks to our work with Boingo means it's an invaluable tool for all passengers."
Bjorn Thorngren, Director of EMEA for Boingo Wireless, said:
"Travelling can be a bit chaotic, and it's a stressful experience for many. EDI's Airport App is a great tool to help users navigate the airport and better coordinate their trip. We're always looking for ways to help our airport partners maximise their passenger experience; this is a great way we both can add value to travellers."
The Edinburgh Airport App also includes a parking widget that helps eliminate the last minute stress of finding a car space. Travellers can reserve a space straight from their phone and tag the exact location of their vehicle, with the option to include a photo reminder just in case their memory fails them when they return from their trip.
The app is available for both Android and iPhone and is free to download.
