• Complements the existing iPhone app
• Provides easy access to information on flights, transport, parking and shopping
Android users will now be able to access information on Australia’s global gateway in the palm of their hand with the official Sydney Airport app for Android launched today.
“More than 70,000 people have already downloaded the Sydney Airport iPhone app. Given its success, we’ve now customised the app for our Android customers to ensure this great app is available to everyone,” Sydney Airport Chief Executive Officer Kerrie Mather said.
“This new app means that whether you’re travelling or accompanying friends or family, all the information on T1 International and T2 Domestic terminals is at your fingertips, where and when you need it.
“Importantly, the app is free and available in both English and simplified Chinese to enable a wide range of travellers to plan their trip simply and effectively.
“China is one of our largest and fastest growing markets so it makes sense to ensure Chinese speakers can also easily access airport information via their phone. Sydney Airport is working hard to ensure that we are ’China-ready’ and is continually looking to enhance the experience of our Chinese-speaking travellers.
“Like the iPhone app, the Android app helps customers to plan their trip by providing useful information on transport, transfers and parking.
“The app is particularly handy for keeping track of flight times and updates, with live flight information for all departing and arriving flights, as well as the ability to subscribe to flight status push updates direct to your phone.
“It also provides terminal maps so passengers can find check-in desks, gates and other services, as well as shops and eateries in the airport terminals.
“I encourage passengers to try it for themselves and download the Android or iPhone apps today,” Ms Mather said.
