Iberia has developed a new application to make its website www.iberia.com accessible from cell phones using the Android operating system. The “Iberia” application can be downloaded free form Android Market site, either from the cell phone itself, or the Iberia web page www.iberia.com/movil
With this application Iberia customers can organize their travel with their cell phone, view flight offers in real time and from any location, and make reservations and even purchase air tickets for the Madrid-Barcelona Puente Aéreo shuttle, look at Iberia’s flight timetables, check the status of reservations, online check-in, and -in airports where the service is available-, even use the cell phone as a boarding pass. The application can also be used to view the points balance in Iberia Plus, or find Iberia telephone numbers anywhere in the world, among many other options.
