Clear Channel Airports, which specializes in airport ad displays, has teamed with Geodelic, an LA-based start-up, to create “FLYsmart,” a free location-based mobile app. FLYsmart allows travelers to quickly locate services and amenities in terminals, as well as browse live feeds of arrival and departure information.
As part of Geodelic’s extensive network, FLYsmart intuitively maps and displays all the immediate information busy air travelers need to locate anything from news stands, gift shops and restaurants, to terminal information, restrooms and more. With just one touch, the map enables travelers to navigate concourses. Another touch can show hotels and services around the airport and even access information about the current city for travelers.
FLYsmart is available now for free download for the iPhone smart phones, with an Android version expected to be released soon. A BlackBerry version is slated for release in early Fall. The app will initially be launched in ten of North America’s largest airports including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago O’Hare, Dallas Fort Worth, Denver, Detroit, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Francisco and Seattle. New airports, of all sizes, will be added each week.
