Expedia-owned corporate travel specialist Egencia has released a new app for the iPhone to meet what it said was growing demand for mobile services from its clients.
Egencia Mobile offers an itinerary builder, flight and destination alerts, schedules, online check-in and click to call functionality.
Designed specifically for business travellers, the app serves relevant information on the user’s trip based on flight and hotel details.
The app will also send alerts to warn travellers of natural disasters or security or weather issues, as well as updates about flights including delays and cancellations.
Alternative flights will also be suggested if a traveller misses a flight or connection.
The app is available in eight languages including English, German, French, Spanish and Italian and is currently available in 13 countries.
Further updates are promised to Egencia Mobile, as are apps for Android, Blackberry and other smartphone platforms.
