Emirates Airline has increased its mobile presence with the launch of the Emirates App for iPad on the global App Store.

Customers can use the app to search 130 Emirates destinations, book flights, check-in online, download their boarding pass and manage their Emirates Skywards frequent flyer account.

Emirates’ vice president, corporate communications, marketing and brand, product, publishing, digital and events Patrick Brannelly said: “The Emirates App was designed for today’s new tribe of global travellers – what we term “globalistas” – who are curious about the world, are mobile and digitally connected, and expect simplicity at their fingertips.

“In some markets, we already see about 20 per cent of visitors to emirates.com using iPads, and our customers are increasingly using their iPads and mobile devices to book and manage their travel. The Emirates App has been designed to make this process even easier, faster and significantly more convenient, and many more enhancements are already in development”.

Brannelly said Emirates was working on making the app available on the iPhone and Android, and planned to introduce many new features in the coming months.
