EasyJet maintains business focus, takes mobile booking to Blackberry first
EasyJet has announced a beta mobile site enabling Blackberry users to search for and book flights across its European destinations.
Until now mobile efforts from the low-cost airline have only allowed travellers to check flight status and manage bookings but the airline is known to have further mobile developments in the pipeline.
The launch of a service for Blackberry users is in line with the company’s focus on the business community.
easyJet is asking users to feedback any comments and glitches on the service via an email link.
In June, the airline made its flexi fare, previously only accessible via GDS or the via travel management company portals, available on the website.
