Airline alliance Skyteam has launched a new application for iPhone users to access flight information for any of its 13 member airlines
The new eSkyGuide allows the user to look up flight schedules, as well as seven-day weather forecasts, an airport locator and contact phone numbers for airlines.
Mauro Oretti, Skyteam’s vice president of sales and marketing, said the app “confirms SkyTeam's ongoing commitment to accelerating product and service developments to meet our global travelers' need for seamless travel”.
He added: "It helps our customers get to where they need to be by providing useful and updated travel information from our members."
The app also notifies travellers if the status of their flight changes.
While in the air, flight schedules can be accessed without using the internet, using a flight safe mode.
The app is currently only available on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Though a release date is yet to be announced, versions for Blackberry and Android handsets are expected “within the next two months”.
