Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has become the first US airport to offer an app that supports the Apple Watch platform following the launch of an upgraded version of its DFW mobile app.
The app provides flight information and notifications on the Apple Watch after it is synced with the DFW app on a smartphone. The updated DFW app, developed by M2mobi, now features six additional languages including Korean, Portuguese, Japanese, Spanish, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese.
“More than 90% of DFW passengers are carrying smartphones and want information regarding their travel instantly,” said Sean Donohue, chief executive officer of DFW Airport.
“The DFW mobile app and our new Apple Watch app allow us to provide customers real-time information tailored to their particular journey, and another example of how we are leveraging the use of technology to provide an overall customer experience that is warm welcoming and efficient.”
The robust DFW Airport mobile app and Apple Watch app are designed to reduce the stress of the traveler. This is accomplished by focusing on the traveler’s basic needs through the intuitive wayfinding functionalities, interactive maps, personalized flight information and simple yet powerful search capabilities.
