EasyJet has launched a new iPhone app http://www.easyjet.com/en/mobile that includes a range of new features designed to make travel simpler and easier for passengers. Since the launch of the budget carrier's first iPhone version in 2011, the app has evolved from easy booking and check-in functionality to include popular features like passport scanning, live flight tracking, mobile boarding passes and Touch ID. It now also includes the easyJet Apple Watch app.
More recently the 'easyJet mobile host', available for London Gatwick Airport guides passengers, step by step, on their day of travel with airport directions, queue times, walk times and other flight reminders and updates.
The new app has been designed incorporating feedback from App Store reviews, emails received and forums with frequent flyers. For example on the day of travel, relevant flight information will seamlessly appear on the homepage and destination imagery shown for searched and booked flights.
The new app also includes a countdown to travel and passenger details such as payment details and passport information can be easily retrieved. Bags, sports equipment, seats, hotels and car hire can also be quickly added to an existing booking as well as a range of helpful push notifications relevant to travel.
The app is available for download now from the App Store and is expected to be available for Android later this year.
