We wanted you to be among the very first to know about our newest travel tool - the Fly Delta app for iPad. We released it late last night so if you have an iPad, we invite you to visit the iTunes store and download it (free to download).
This latest innovation uses information and features common to tablets in ways that are unique for anyone in the travel industry. Booking, travel planning, destination guides – it’s all in there. Once you’ve downloaded the app, you’ll have the option of watching a short demo and quick overview of all the new features. The app release is the final component of the most recent phase of improvements you’ve already seen in the past few months including updates to our kiosks and delta.com last fall.
And now, for the first time ever, you can use the Glass Bottom Jet, which offers a new way of viewing the world through a combination of iPad features, social networks and the internet while using a paid Gogo session in-flight. We included a sample of it on the in-app demo so you can get a taste of what to expect the next time you fly.
Not surprisingly, many of you have already noticed that we’ve also updated the Fly Delta app for iPhone (2.0)
last night as well. And yes, that includes Passbook functionality and the ability to book tickets with your phone. The Fly Delta app for Android phones is next on our project list and should be ready before the end of first quarter 2013.
We hope you like the new additions and we’ll be interested to read your comments as you try them out over the coming days, weeks and months ahead.
