EXPERTFLYER.COM INTRODUCES “MOBILE ACCESS:” THE FASTEST WAY TO RETRIEVE AIRLINE FLIGHT INFORMATION WORLDWIDE
Popular Website for Business Travelers and Frequent Flyers Allows Premium Subscribers to Access Critical Flight Information Directly from Their Cell Phones
New York, NY – October 26, 2007 – ExpertFlyer.com, the premiere air travel information tool offering complete and efficient ways to access the ever changing details of worldwide air travel information, is introducing ExpertFlyer: Mobile Edition, the fastest and most convenient way for its subscribers to access up-to-the minute flight information about virtually any airline from anywhere in the world.� The new service, available at no additional cost to ExpertFlyer Premium subscribers ($9.99 monthly or $99/annual subscription fee), provides direct access to personalized flight information previously available only through the use of a desktop or laptop computer.� The ability to check saved Flight Queries, Flight Alerts for upgrades and Awards tickets and Seat Maps gives business travelers and frequent flyers using ExpertFlyer.com with a distinct advantage over other travelers searching for the same information.
ExpertFlyer also announced it is adding a new feature to both its new Mobile Edition and “desktop” version for all subscribers (with a starting $4.99/month Basic subscription).� Now, when members search for flight information, they will be able to select their “airport connection” preference that allows them to find flight options with more connections than usual.� This new option is designed for users to see all the possibilities for such things as mileage runs and award and upgrade availability using alternative, non-traditional, routings.
“Our new Mobile Edition empowers our Premium members by allowing them to quickly access the most important travel information they need directly from their ExpertFlyer account to make any last-minute changes or adjustments based on their schedule or special requests,” says Chris Lopinto, co-founder of ExpertFlyer.� “Now, members can check the status of any number of flight information queries on their way to the airport or anywhere else in the world.� This is another way we are providing our members the information they need, when they need it,” Lopinto added.
The Saved Queries feature allows ExpertFlyer members to review -- and save -- a variety of dates and specific flights to reference later.� This is especially important for business travelers whose schedules are not clearly defined and need to quickly inquire about additional flights to suit their business travel needs.�
Flight Alerts allows members to program up to 20 alerts at any given time and request notification of any matches be sent to three separate email addresses including PDA’s cell phones, and pagers.� Flight Alerts saves hours of frustration and time searching for upgrades or award tickets and gives its members the upper hand at securing any available inventory once they become available.
Seat Maps shows available and occupied seat locations for a particular flight on a particular day for more than 100 different airlines.� The ability to access this information remotely allows ExpertFlyer members to change their assigned seat based on last-minute cancellations or openings provided by the airline.
