British Airways makes travel easier at LBA

British Airways is keeping its Leeds Bradford Airport customers 'Appy', with an app that allows them to save time and check-in on their smartphones.

Executive Club iPhone users can use the app to display mobile boarding passes on their phones.

In addition, customers using Android and Blackberry devices will be able to benefit from a version of the British Airways app.

The app’s easy-to-use stylish interface also gives customers instant access to their Executive Club details and updates on flights.

Tony Hallwood, Leeds Bradford Airport’s Commercial Director, said: “Mobility and convenience is key for British Airways’ customers from Leeds Bradford Airport, so that no matter where they are, they can turn to their mobile phones to find the very latest information about flights, check in times and even access boarding passes allowing them to stay one step ahead.

“The mobile boarding pass feature for Executive Club iPhone users will be especially welcome for those customers unable to print off their own boarding cards when returning from overseas.

“British Airways is committed to putting their customers in charge and making the travel experience even easier."

British Airways was the first airline to develop an app for customers for the launch of the iPhone in the UK.

The app ensures customers have even greater functionality and have access to real flight information about their upcoming bookings, full integration with their Executive Club details and easily and smoothly guide customers through each stage of their flight process.

It also provides improved flight information, a dedicated travel news section, FAQs, a Twitter news feed for iPhone users, and a link to the mobile website.
