  • Pre-Trip For a one way or return flight, only minimal search criteria are required. Alex simply enters the origin, destination, date and number of passengers. Results for flights are returned in seconds, and ordered by price. To help him make the choice that is best for him, Alex can then list, sort and filter the flights by different criteria such as departure time or airline, and thus make a speedy selection of the right flight.
  • In-Trip At any time Alex can securely log-on to view his upcoming trips and specific flight details. He uses his mobile phone number to log-on and receives an activation code via SMS. Travel details can then be accessed starting conveniently from the latest information viewed. To save time, Alex likes to check-in online whenever possible which he does as he receives an SMS message alert which includes the airline URL and booking reference. PS. Online check-in reminder: airline URL & booking reference included when available (not yet available for all airlines)
