Sydney and Melbourne airports are finally gearing up to release Android versions of their handy iPhone apps, which provide live updates on your flight – including the checkin counter, departure gate and when boarding opens – as well as finding your way around the airport.
Sydney Airport's Android app is "in the pipeline", says the airport's Media & Communications Manager Tracy Ong, who told Australian Business Traveller the app would land sometime this year – although we hear this could be sooner rather than later.
Melbourne Airport is also getting Droid-friendly. "We are currently working on an Android version and an update for our iPhone app" says Media and Communications Manager Anna Gillett, although we've yet to hear a timeframe for this one.
What about the Red Roo? "Qantas is looking into releasing an Android app", a Qantas spokesperson told Australian Business Traveller. But whether this would be a fully-featured offering along the same lines as the airline's excellent Windows Phone app, or a more limited frequent flyer app like its current iPhone version, "is something we are still looking into."
