Qantas today launched a mobile version of the airline’s website qantas.com, especially for the new Apple iPhone 3G.
Qantas Chief Information Officer, Jamila Gordon said Qantas was the third
airline in the world and the first in the Southern Hemisphere to introduce
the initiative.“Qantas is the only airline to incorporate an accessibility function that
works like the phone itself - using its touch interface, rather than
offering services through a website link.”
Ms Gordon said the current features available on the phone for both Qantas
and Jetstar would be expanded over time to include a comprehensive range of services, including searching fares and timetables, booking flights, selecting seats and on-line check in.
Ms Gordon said that in addition to accessing timetable information for both
Qantas and Jetstar, iPhone users would also be able to access a whole range of other features, including lounge locations and airport services.
“Qantas will soon be offering its customers the same services available on
the iPhone on other mobile devices such as Blackberry and smart phones,” he added.
