Regional carrier Silk Air unveiled its new mobile app earlier this week, designed to provide travellers with greater efficiency and convenience throughout the travel experience.

The app’s core features include flight booking, exclusive fares and itinerary management. Flight updates and information can be set to appear on the customisable home screen, meanwhile alerts such as check-in reminders can be received via push notifications. The app also enables members of parent company Singapore Airlines’ loyalty programme, KrisFlyer, to view details such as miles and tier information.

To speed up the check-in process, a Mobile Boarding Pass feature is also available for travellers departing Singapore Changi Airport.

“Silk Air is constantly improving and enhancing our various digital touch points to keep up with the changing landscape of the travel industry,” said Ryan Pua, vice president commercial for Silk Air. “With the Silk Air mobile app, customers can expect greater control and convenience when it comes to planning their travel itineraries.”

The launch of the app is being accompanied by special deals available exclusively through the app, available until October 17. These include all-in fares of S$159 (US$116) to Langkawi, US$138 to Phuket and US$167 to Yogyakarta.

Available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, the app is compatible with iOS 8 and 9, and Android version 4.0.3 onwards.
