Passengers flying through Dubai International can now access vital travel information right on their smartwatch. Developed by Dubai Airports in conjunction with Amsterdam-based company M2Mobi, the app is being made available for iOS and Android software platforms. An extension of the Dubai Airports mobile app, the smartwatch app provides travellers quick access to the latest status of their bookmarked flight, including arrival or departure times, terminal, gate or baggage belt information.

“It’s a service that will find appreciation among the increasing number of travellers that are now smartphone and smartwatch users,” said Matthew Horobin, digital media head at Dubai Airports. “As part of the first phase of the project the smartwatch app currently provides customers access to only the most important information related to their flight. There are plans to make the app more interactive while also widening its functionality to include wayfinding and commercial offers from food and beverage and retail outlets across the airport,” Matthew added.
