Monitise is powering a new suite of mobile apps for Turkish Airlines. Monitise has worked with Turkish Airlines since 2009, and designed and developed the airline’s previous ‘Fly Turkish’ apps for iPhone, BlackBerry, Java and WAP.
The new apps can take the customer from planning and purchase through to boarding, all via mobile. Users can view offers from the airline, purchase tickets, check-in, store mobile boarding passes to a passbook, choose seats, order meals, access their flight status and track baggage. The apps also sync with other smartphone functions to allow users to purchase tickets for their contacts and add flights to their calendar.
The intuitive and sophisticated design of the apps delivers a fresh and engaging user experience through animations, gesture controls and destination themes, which bring to life journeys on maps and destination weather conditions. The apps also integrate Turkish Airlines’ loyalty programme, ‘Miles & Smiles’, showing users their miles and available benefits.
More than 30 million users have registered for Monitise’s patented technology to ‘bank anywhere’, ‘pay anyone’ and ‘buy anything’, accounting for $88bn of payments, purchases and transfers annually.
