British Airways is set to be one of the first companies to have a specially developed app on the new Apple Watch when it launches on April 24.
There will be two elements to the app to make travel even easier for customers of the airline. A swipe of the “glance” screen will open the BA app, designed to fit the Apple Watch screen and make it easy and quick to interact with. It will display a more detailed summary of the customer’s next flight, the flight number, route, departure time, flight status, a countdown to the departure time and the weather at the destination.
Customers will also benefit from timely check-in and airport gate notifications, and those using the lounges at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 will receive iBeacon powered welcome messages. British Airways was one of the first airlines in the UK to utilize iBeacon technology in its lounges and uses it to provide customers with useful and timely information as they pass through the airport.
