Gateway develops mobile booking engine for flights
Gateway and Sound of Data have jointly developed an application that allows users to search, book and pay for flights directly on an iPhone. This flight booking engine has been integrated into the previously launched iPhone app by Cheaptickets.nl.
Gateway has created a mobile booking system, which takes into account all the needs and wishes of the iPhone user. “The products of online travel agents remain the same, but the sales channels have changed. Gateway’s extensive experience with booking engines allows us to respond perfectly to this trend and offer a completely customised solution”, says Andries Oprel, Sales & Marketing Director at Gateway.
In 2011, Sound of Data already launched the first iPhone app platform for Cheaptickets to allow the checking of flight data and general information such as the weather forecast. The new booking functionality has now been added to this. “It is incredible to see how fast the consumer is embracing mobile technology. Not only to communicate with each other, but also to buy goods and services", adds Jeroen van Velzen, CEO of Sound of Data.
The app can now be downloaded for free in the App Store.
