INTERNATIONAL. Airport mobile commerce company Airport U has hailed the launch of myDXB, the new mobile app that it developed for Dubai Airports.
As reported, myDXB is a mobile application for Apple and Android devices designed to make navigating one of the world’s busiest and largest airports easier.
Available free from the app store, myDXB provides information on flights and gate numbers as well as way-finding to locate customer-facing services across the three terminals of Dubai International Airport.
Built with a simple interface, myDXB can be downloaded on iPhones and iPads as well as on the wide range of Android phones and tablets in seconds. While Dubai International offers free Wi-Fi Internet connectivity throughout the airport, the directory element of the application has been designed to operate offline so that more customers can access and benefit from it.
Airport U was commissioned by Dubai Airports to create the app. The company said: “The app, based on unique navigation technology, provides innovative and user-friendly features to the airport’s travellers with a strong focus on commercial opportunities with detailed dynamic maps and descriptions of the food & beverage and retail concessions.
“myDXB, based on the Airport U platform, shows offers, promotions and has links to the concession websites so that passengers can browse in advance of their journey, plan their time at the airport and visit their favourite restaurants, bars and shops. Fitted with a personal FID, passengers are reassured they can dwell in the lounge before their flight.”
