Smooth Take-off for London Stansted iPhone ApplicationLONDON, UK - December 08, 2010
Premium solution for Britain’s third busiest airport marks a first for Trapeze
Trapeze’s specialist mobile technology team has successfully completed its first airport project, delivering a major new multi-functional iPhone application for London Stansted. The free application gives travellers all the information they need, conveniently bringing together live flight updates, public and private transport options for getting to and from the airport, and a range of useful information for time spent at the terminal.
One of the most feature-rich airport applications available, the London Stansted service includes comprehensive multi-modal travel information using dynamic feeds of air, rail, bus, tube and taxi information. Drivers can save time and money by pre-booking car parking.
Users can look up what shops and restaurants are available before leaving home, check the latest flight status while en route, and explore scrollable terminal maps to help navigate the airport. Other useful features include information on car hire, assistance for people with mobility difficulties, and latest security and baggage policies, altogether making this an essential tool for everyone using London Stansted, whether planning a trip, catching a plane, or just driving friends and relatives to the airport.
The application gives both London Stansted and its travellers the confidence of being an official, accurate, reliable source of information, including live news and notices posted directly to the application by the airport. The application is free to download from the travel section of iTunes – just search for Stansted.
Steve Mills, London Stansted’s iPhone development manager, said: “London Stansted's free iPhone application gives passengers all the information they need for a smooth and hassle free airport experience. So, whether you’re a frequent flyer or a first time visitor, the Stansted application is an essential tool for all travellers passing through the UK's third busiest airport.”
Coming shortly after major iPhone project deliveries for thetrainline.com and Traveline Scotland, this new service again demonstrates the Trapeze team’s expertise in delivering compelling specialist transport applications.
“Collaborating with London Stansted on our first airport application has really brought out the best in our team. We’re transport specialists with years of experience handling complex data feeds, and so we’ve been able to design a richly functional service that stands out from the crowd,” said Tim Johnson, product manager at Trapeze. “I look forward to using it myself next time I fly from Stansted.”
