Those who are at the forefront of technology, flying through Dubai International (DXB), now will always be up-to-date about their flight-info through a single look on their wrist. M2mobi was asked to develop and integrate the Dubai International smartwatch app with the already popular smartphone app.
With nearly 79 milion passengers at Dubai International in 2015 we needed to develop a smartwatch experience for everyone. In order to realize this, the Dubai International smartwatch app is made available for both iOS and Android - the main operating systems. The smartwatch app provides early-adopting passengers quick and easy acces to the latest status of their bookmarked flight. This includes their current flight status, live arrival or departure time, terminal, gate or baggage belt information.The app has been developed by Dubai Airports in conjunction with Amsterdam-based company M2Mobi.
"As part of the first phase of the project the smartwatch app currently provides customers access to only the most important information related to their flight. There are plans to make the app more interactive while also widening its functionality to include wayfinding and commercial offers from food and beverage and retail outlets across the airport" Matthew, Head of Digital Media at Dubai Airports
"We want to deliver innovation and relevance on all channels. This smartwatch support is yet another step towards the best connected passenger experience." Michiel Munneke, General Director at M2mobi.
