Orbitz today launched the Orbitz Flights, Hotels, Cars app for iPad, an extension of its top-rated mobile apps. The Orbitz app for iPad is the only fully native, in-app experience that allows consumers to search and book all three major components of a trip. Designed specifically for the iPad, the new app brings the same speed, ease of use and exclusive mobile-only discounts to consumers as the award-winning Orbitz iPhone app – a 2012 inductee into the App Store Hall of Fame and the only travel booking app given the App Store’s Editors’ Choice designation.
“Nearly 30% of U.S. adults own a tablet which is up from 2% less than three years ago.1 During this unprecedented era of tablet growth, Orbitz is bringing the winning characteristics to iPad that consumers most value in travel apps – a fast, easy way to search and book travel and get great deals,” said Chris Orton , president of Orbitz.com. “Unlike competitive travel apps that send users on a wild ride across multiple booking sites, the new Orbitz iPad app is the only app that allows consumers to book flights, cars and hotels in a seamless, in-app experience.”
Highlights of the new Orbitz iPad app:
* Unrivaled speed and ease of use: Search and book flights, hotels, and rental cars in a flash with a dual list/map view of hotels, the ability to compare details of multiple flights, rental cars, or hotels from a single screen, and powerful sorting & filtering capabilities.
* Exclusive mobile-only deals: Save up to 50% off hotels in hundreds of popular destinations worldwide with Orbitz Mobile Steals.
* Convenient travel tools: View travel itineraries 24x7 even without an internet connection, add a trip itinerary to the iPad calendar, and get 1-tap access to information on flight delays and gate changes.
