Vueling has announced the release an app for purchasing flights for the Google Android operating system, which enables access to Vueling’s services in addition to the purchasing of tickets.
Boasting what Vueling describes as “a simple, intuitive interface”, the app enables flexible purchasing and management of flights, both fundamental qualities for the success of mobile applications.
With the new service, Vueling aims to build on the success of its first mobile application for Apple devices, released last July, which, within six months of operation has accumulated more than 600,000 downloads. The iPhone app was “widely considered as an advanced app, as it was originally the only one in the aviation sector that enabled the purchasing of tickets without leaving the application”. The new Vueling Android app will offer the same facility and is available in Spanish and in English.
The new application for Android is integral to Vueling’s strategy to consolidate itself as a company at the forefront of technological advances in the aviation sector. The new direct channels have become basic tools for searching, purchasing and accessing added value services.
In addition to purchasing tickets, passengers can also check-in online or use their phones as boarding passes with the QR code at selected airports; select seats, change the time or date of their flights; locate the nearest Vueling airport through geolocation; learn about the latest offers and access the customer care centre.
