City Airport moved into the 21st century last week with the launch of its first wireless application protocol-based service, offering real-time flight information over a mobile phone. With the information updated every 90 seconds, passengers and those awaiting their arrival can regularly check the status of both departures and arrivals by flight time, number or airline.
But this is only the beginning, said Bernard Lavelle, sales and marketing manager at City Airport. He explained that there are plans afoot to provide a second level of service, including access to flight timetables, mobile flight booking and eventually a mobile check-in service.
