Dubai-based low cost carrier Flydubai has joined many other organizations in adopting Windows 8 based tablets. Flydubai is now using Windows 8 based tablets at Dubai International Airport to facilitate passenger check-in. Because of this Windows 8 based solution, Flydubai has reduced the check-in time to two minutes per passenger. The airline’s new app connects to their backend services and is integrated with a passport scanner and printer. It aims to ease the check-in process by allowing staff to scan passenger information, assign seats and issue boarding passes on the spot. This solution was developed in partnership with Microsoft Gulf
“Travel is one of the fastest growing industries in the region,” said Michael Mansour, directors of Apps and Innovation at Microsoft Gulf.
“It is under increasing pressure to deliver improved quality of service while tackling productivity and workforce shortage challenges. The Windows 8 App developed for flydubai is a regional first, enabling staff to check-in passengers on-the-go.”
