Cathay Pacific launches airline app for iPad

28 Jul 2010 by BusinessTraveller

Cathay Pacific’s new iPad application is now available from Apple’s iTunes store. The airline’s CX Mobile application for the iPad (see images below) can now be downloaded free of charge, and offers users access to a wide range of Cathay Pacific services and information.

In addition to providing all the functionality of the CX Mobile app developed for the iPhone and other handheld devices, the iPad application also enables users to make bookings for their Cathay Pacific flights.

Cathay Pacific general manager marketing James Ginns said: “Cathay Pacific has been working hard on developing its mobile services and we are delighted to offer iPad users the ability to book their flights directly from their device.”

The new iPad app allows users to book flights, check-in, check the status of flights, access flight schedules and manage bookings. CX Mobile also links users to Marco Polo Club information and insights into more than 70 destinations worldwide through the popular City Guides, and provides information about the people who “go the extra mile to make passengers feel special” through the interactive “Meet the team” function.

Cathay Pacific’s existing CX Mobile application is offered on different mobile platforms, such as BlackBerry and Windows Mobile, in addition to the iPhone.  

The CX Mobile application for the iPad is currently only available in English. More languages will be featured in the next release.
