25 January 2013
Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport, TX, has launched its official mobile app for smartphones, giving customers the latest information and updates about flights, parking, shops, restaurants and airport services. According to a release, the DFW Airport mobile app, which was developed with feedback from DFW customers, is now available as a free download at the iTunes App Store, Google’s Android Play Store and BlackBerry App World. “The DFW Airport mobile app represents a breakthrough in the way the customers can navigate DFW Airport,” said Jeff Fegan, CEO of DFW. “This is the first airport app that notifies DFW travellers about gate changes through a push notification, and it can also help you determine parking availability or find a bite to eat in one easy solution.” The mobile app’s push notification feature is a first for airport-developed apps, notifying passengers who request information about changes to flight details. DFW said the new app contains a wide variety of customer-requested features including flight information and tracking; flight and gate updates with alert notifications; parking availability, locations and rates; and restaurant and shopping locations.
