Shannon Airport has launched its new mobile app, the first of its kind in Ireland offering features such as smartwatch integration and augmented reality bag size checkers.

The new app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, and it its features aim to ensure the journey through Shannon Airport is as smooth as possible.

The new Shannon Airport app is the first of its kind to offer smart watch integration, with customers able to receive real-time flight tracking updates and push notifications directly to their smart watch. This means passengers are updated in real time on the live status of departing and arriving flights, check-in status, baggage carousel information, gate statuses, and flight delays or cancellations.

The app also offers users an augmented reality bag size checker, where passengers can measure their bag size at home using the measurement tool on the app, to ensure it complies with specific airline guidelines for carry-on luggage.

With the app, passengers can also pay for their car parking, and they will be able to easily locate their car upon their return to Shannon with the ‘Pin My Car’ feature. The user just needs to pin the location of their parked car on the airport map when they arrive at the airport, which they can then use to easily find it on returning from their trip.

Customers will also be able to access Shannon Airport’s route destinations, while its interactive map feature will ensure passengers can easily navigate their way through the airport.

Trevor Curran, Marketing Manager at Shannon Airport commented: “Here at Shannon Airport, we are committed to delivering a seamless travel experience, focusing on customer satisfaction and innovation.
