Emirates go Android

44 - Emirates expands its mobile footprint, launches an Android app - 1On the heels of the successful launch of its Apple Watch app, Emirates announced the debut of the Emirates App for Android, the world’s largest mobile platform. With more than one hundred thousand monthly users of its iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch apps, Emirates is ramping up its efforts to enhance its passengers’ travel experience through mobile technologies.

Developed in-house, the Emirates App for Android is a true personal journey planner, enabling users to: book flights and review travel itineraries; manage every aspect of a booking, from seat selection to on-board menu and what’s on ice; download their boarding pass directly to Google Now or send it to a phone via SMS or email; receive quick updates on flight boarding and gate changes , get notifications about our Chauffeur-drive service; verify the status of a flight and sign up for alerts to know when it has departed or arrived; and manage all the details of their Skywards account such as favourite destinations, aisle or window seats, and preferred newspaper.

“With the popularity of Emirates’ first app for iPhone, many customers have asked for the Emirates App for Android. In fact, half of all users who access our website via mobile devices are on the Android platform,” commented Alex Knigge, Emirates’ Senior Vice President – Digital.

Emirates continues to enhance its existing apps and develop new technologies that will benefit customers using a variety of mobile devices. For customers on-the-go who do not have iPhones, iPads or Android devices, Emirates also offers mobile.emirates.com as a mobile solution.

Emirates currently operates daily scheduled flights between Malta and Dubai via Larnaca, Cyprus.
