Heathrow Airport is offering passengers a free version of its newly launched mobile application for the next four weeks to provide passengers with the latest information and updates on the status of flights operating in and out of the airport.
Heathrow’s first ‘Airport Guide’ app is designed for anyone travelling to, from or through Heathrow, and will enable passengers to plan their airport visit from the palm of their hand. There are two versions of the app: a free edition and a paid for premium pro version, which normally costs £1.79 per year but will be available to download at no cost until the end of May.
The free version helps passengers locate and book the most convenient method of transport to the airport, and provides information on check-in procedures, airport news and terminal details. Once at the airport, the app provides detailed terminal maps, shop locations and retail offers.
The pro version also offers the ability to access flight information updates and to track flight progress. It contains six months of scheduled flight timetables for every airline at Heathrow, as well as five-day weather forecasts for over 220 global locations.
The Heathrow Airport Guide app is available now for the iPhone and iPod touch, Vodafone 360 and Android, and is coming soon to Blackberry and Java-based Smartphones. There’s more information here.
