American Airlines has released a new app that provides travelers with a number of utilities including flight details, standby list tracking, mobile boarding passes and more. The app hit the App Store early this morning and is free.
The full list of the app’s features is as follows:
- Enter your login & password only once: saving your info allows the app to push your upcoming flight details to your home screen, automatically
- Set a parking reminder
- Monitor your place on the standby list
- Track your Elite Status progress
- View personal flight details: get your gate, seat and flight status info at a glance
- Access your mobile boarding pass: the app saves it for you, so it’s always easy to find
- Use GPS to locate the nearest American Airlines serviced airport
- View terminal maps
- Play Sudoku
American Airlines states in its press release that future updates to the app will take advantage of its GPS capabilities and offer push notifications. An iPad-specific version of the app will also be released shortly.
Outside of the U.S., British Airways also added a mobile boarding pass feature to its app last week.
