Alaska Airlines and sister regional carrier Horizon Air have launched three mobile travel applications designed for iPhone, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile users.
The free applications are available for download at www.alaskaair.com/mobile. Unlike the Web-optimized mobile.alaskaair.com site, the applications are custom built for each device and can be downloaded directly to the smartphone.
The device-customized native applications provide customers with flight status information, flight schedules, flight alerts and a link to Web check-in. Customers can also log in to “My Trips” to view their itineraries, change seats, check their upgrade status, and add an Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan number to a reservation. The applications also give customers access to download electronic boarding passes.
“Alaska and Horizon Air’s mobile apps offer people access to the most frequently used functions they need on the day of flight,” says Steve Jarvis, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of marketing, sales and customer experience.
Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air are subsidiaries of Alaska Air Group. Together they serve more than 90 cities through a network in Alaska, the Lower 48 states in the Continental United States, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico. For reservations, visit alaskaair.com.
