"Collaborating with MobileAware has helped us to develop mobile services in new and innovative ways."
Boston, MA (PRWEB UK) 13 December 2011
MobileAware and Air France-KLM have brought to market the new standard for airline mobile care services. Available from the latest touch-screen and smartphone devices, as well as many more basic models, flyers can now book flights, check-in, generate boarding passes, see flight information, manage their Flying Blue accounts and purchase upgraded services such as additional baggage, all from the palms of their hands. Air France-KLM is the first carrier to launch the mobile “Manage My Booking” service, including a re-booking facility, greatly simplifying passengers’ interaction with the airline.
The mobile websites are available in ten languages for KLM and nine for Air France, and can be accessed on mobile devices at mobile.airfrance.com and mobile.klm.com. Their respective free applications can also be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Android App Market.
“As major players in the area of mobility, our ambition is to offer our customers their personal travel assistant. We are constantly innovating to better serve our customers,” said Christian Herzog, Senior Vice President Marketing, Air France-KLM. “Collaborating with MobileAware has helped us to develop mobile services in new and innovative ways,” added Martijn van de Zee, Senior Vice President eCommerce, Air France-KLM.
Since their launch, the Air France-KLM mobile sites and apps have seen exponential increases in usage and revenue generated with services such as mobile electronic booking and mobile check-in. The companies are working jointly on new services and features to be launched during 2011, such as “Time to Think” and promotions. MobileAware delivers the mobile experience through a flexible, managed services solution to Air France-KLM.
“MobileAware is proud to partner with Air France and KLM on their mobile services; MobileAware provides the Group with a superior user experience, and a solid framework for implementing their industry-leading mobile strategy,” said Armin Gebauer, CEO of MobileAware. “We look forward to a long relationship and continuing to pioneer new services to be brought to the airline market.”
