Qantas is beefing up its Apple iPhone app, with an improved version packing more features and optimised for iOS 7 now available for download from the iTunes Australia Store.
The new app boasts "a smarter and more personalised interface to help streamline the day of travel experience for customers", according to Qantas.
This includes locating the best route to the airport, using data pulled from Google Maps; suggesting the best method for check-in; and serving up real-time flight updates and alerts on boarding time and gate.
When you arrive at your destination, the app also advises which baggage carousel your luggage can be retrieved from.
Qantas Domestic CEO Lyell Strambi touts the update as delivering "a full service travel companion" which "anticipates all your travel needs - putting timely and relevant information in your hand when you need it."
“It creates a personalised travel timeline to make airport departures and arrivals a breeze,” Strambi adds. "This lets our customers focus on the meeting they are flying to or the holiday reading they bought for their trip,"
As with the previous version, you can still buy airfares, book a hotel, view Frequent Flyer points and create sale and special offer fare alerts to preferred destinations.
