Emirates to sync Google Now with online bookings

Emirates has announced it will start to roll-out Google Now cards for passengers who book via Emirates.com.

A feature of the Google Search app, Google Now is available and fully integrated for Android and iOS.

Google Now is a smart personal assistant that gives users exactly the travel information they need, when they need it, with minimal effort spent searching.

The app reminds passengers of their upcoming flight, providing flight times and departure terminal.

“Emirates prides itself on our constant innovation and working with technology partners that will enhance our passengers’ experience “, said Patrick Brannelly, vice president product, publishing, digital and events, Emirates Corporate Communications, Marketing & Brand.

“For users who book on Emirates.com, Google Now will allow us to deliver even more pre-flight information to our customers about their destination in a very user-friendly style and we hope our passengers find it of benefit.” 

Emirates is the first airline in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region to adopt this technology.

Google Now is available immediately for Emirates passengers who book on Emirates.com, provided they have downloaded the appropriate version of the app for their smartphone and have a Gmail account.
