Cathay Pacific Airways has deployed Unimobile`s Mobile Messaging Platform (MMP) and the Unimobile Intelligent Network (UIN) to provide mobile flight notification services to its customers with coverage expanded to 33 countries and territories.
Unimobile`s solution is a key component of Cathay Pacific`s service, which is now available to customers across the airline`s network of 47 destinations around the world.
Cathay Pacific is one of the few airlines in the world to offer this service globally. Subscribers to the free notiFLY service can have the latest Cathay Pacific flight information sent directly to their mobile phones using SMS. By entering the flight details via the Cathay Pacific Web site or through their PDAs, users can request a notiFLY message to be sent in advance of a flight departure or arrival. A reminder message will be sent to their mobile phone confirming the flight`s timing. It can also warn if the flight will be early by more than 10 minutes, or delayed by more than 30 minutes.
notiFLY alerts are routed to the Unimobile Intelligent Network (UIN), a network extending to 500 carriers in 130 countries, for delivery to customers` mobile devices in the 33 countries that are included in this wave of coverage expansion. Unimobile`s platform and network offer advanced capabilities including message multicasting, message delivery confirmation, 2-way interactive alerts and queries, and multi-lingual support.
