An app for Apple Watch has been developed by Japan Airlines to provide travel information, flight status and check-in at the gate.

The JAL Countdown app provides passengers with domestic flight data – including flight status and boarding gate details – as well as boarding procedures and notifications at the airport.

Passengers can check gate details, flight status and boarding times by tapping notifications delivered on Apple Watch.

With a two dimensional QR code, passengers can board flights, go through security checkpoints and enter airport lounges by using the new mobile device.

Users can also count down the exact time to their flight in increments of ten minutes.

The app, to be available for Apple Watch from April 24, will provide users with three design options as it counts down the departure time, such as an animated plane taking off when it is time for departure.

The airline worked with digital giant IBM Interactive Experience to support the development and design of the new app.
