EasyJet passengers who carry iPhones can now receive real-time flight status updates via push notifications.
Customers who use the budget carrier’s app will receive live messages sent to their smartphones to let them know when online check-in opens or when travel documentation needs to be added to a booking.
The notifications also let travellers know if flights are on time or delayed.
The airline said notifications would also ensure customers were aware of its Flight Tracker tool, which is available in the app and on the mobile website.
Flight Tracker, which was launched last year, provides users with instant information about all flights on the airline’s network.
Peter Duffy, easyJet’s group commercial director for customers, products and marketing said: “The use of push notifications will transform the way that we communicate with passengers.
“It’s yet another way in which easyJet is using technology to keep passengers informed.
“We’ll be providing them with targeted messages and helpful reminders at various steps of their journey to make things even easier for them when they’re on the move.”
