SWISS launches application for BlackBerry smartphones

SWISS now offers an application for use on BlackBerry® smartphones. The new app enables users to make a SWISS reservation, check in, check the status of their flight, and more, while they’re on the move.


The new SWISS app offers BlackBerry smartphone users access to all the airline’s mobile services. The app, developed especially for use on BlackBerry smartphones, provides swift, simple and secure access to SWISS’s timetables, the latest status information on arriving and departing flights and the option to purchase additional flight tickets. The application also integrates with other functions on a BlackBerry smartphone, including GPS capability, meaning the app can even be used to check the latest flight details at the nearest airport served by SWISS, based on the user’s current location.        


The app’s webview function enables SWISS customers to check in from their mobile phone and select their seat. Their electronic boarding card is then sent to them as an email or text message. And to round off its full range of air travel services, the app acts as a trip advisor: details of SWISS’s baggage provisions, lounge facilities and inflight services can be called up at any time.   


The new app is available to BlackBerry smartphone users free of charge in English, French, German or Italian and can be downloaded on BlackBerry App World™. For further information visit www.swiss.com/blackberry or BlackBerry App World.

“Now more than ever, our customers using Blackberry will find it more convenient to fly via SWISS.  The new application simplifies their lives when reserving, checking in or finding out status of their SWISS flights.  This new service is part of our resolve to offer our customers service right at their fingertips,” said Martin Massueger Director, Head of Sales Middle East, Africa, Pakistan and Iran for Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS).

SWISS operates daily flights from Muscat and non-stop daily flights from Dubai to Zurich connecting passengers to over 70 destinations in 39 countries in its winter schedule.
