S7 Airlines, member of oneworld global alliance, presented the app for Android smartphones, said in the carrier’s statement.
“We always use state-of-the-art technologies to make planning the journey more convenient for our passengers. A few years ago S7 Airlines was the first Russian airline to present an iPhone app allowing the passengers purchase a ticket quickly and easily and have all the necessary flight information, - S7 Airlines E-Commerce Director, Dmitry Chuyko, said. - The app is very popular among our passengers and it is also one of the most popular apps in the Travel category in the AppStore. We hope the Android app will also be very popular”.
The new app allows smart phone users to access the S7 Airlines flight schedule, choose the most convenient flights and purchase tickets using a credit card. Just like the airline’s website, the app allows a user to book tickets and pay for them later using other payment methods.
“The upcoming flights may be added directly to the calendar in order to organize your schedule easily. Information about all the flights you have purchased tickets for can be found in the MyS7 section”, - the carrier noted. Moreover, the app allows you to check-in for the flights in advance, choose a desired seat and download the mobile boarding pass. It will be available in the app even without the Internet connection. The mobile boarding pass can also be saved in the Samsung Wallet app.
The members of S7 Priority frequent flyer program have access to the My Profile area containing all information on the member’s account, balance and mile transactions. The app can define the user’s location to find the nearest S7 Airlines sales office. A passenger may call the Contact Centre at a toll-free number or via the Internet directly from the app.
