The applications provide useful information and tips such as live flight updates, terminal maps, shop and restaurant listings, car parking, timetable for transport to and from airport, airline contacts, airport rules, etc...
The main challenge for this project was to integrate the mobile application with the existing airport IT infrastructure without breaking any security restrictions and introducing any other issues.
Aplana teams successfully addressed the challenge by uploading all data required into an FTP server, thus making the server available for use by the application without compromising security or bringing additional overhead to the entire project.
The application offers a wealth features particularly useful to the travelers such as:
* Up-to-date arrival and departure information
* Flight status updates through push notifications
* Comprehensive airport guide with contact information
* Shopping and dining listings
* Various interactive maps
* Parking space recall function
