US Airways app arrives for Android users

Posted In News - By AndroidPress on Wednesday, July 31st, 2013 With No Comments »

Android users have some convenience when it comes to flying with Google Now. But while Google Now provides quick and easy access to things like boarding passes, it certainly doesn’t compete with full-featured apps direct from the airlines. In this case it looks like some good news has arrived for those who often travel with US Airways.

The US Airways app has arrived by way of the Google Play Store where it is currently sitting at version 1.0 and with support for devices running Android 2.1 or later. Perhaps more important though, using the US Airways app will allow you to manage your trips from beginning to end.

Some of the highlights include being able to book flights, check-in and manage your account. The app also has the ‘boarding pass wallet’ which does just what one would think — serves as a central location within the app to find your boarding passes. Those looking to use this will need to choose the “send my passes to my smartphone’ option when checking-in.

Remaining features also include being able to find club locations, get terminal information and even email trip information to friends and family members. Using the app while on the ground is obvious given you will likely have cellular or WiFi connectivity, however you will also be able to use the app on Gogo flights.

Similar to how you can visit the usairways.com website for free on Gogo flights, you can also use the US Airways mobile app on an Android device for free. Bottom line here, the US Airways app has arrived alongside the countless others including American Airlines, United Airlines, Southwest Airlines and others. Not to mention the more general travel apps such as Expedia, TripAdvisor, Kayak and Orbitz.
