Dedicated iPhone App Released by Air Canada

Canadians on the go are probably pretty familiar with what Air Canada has to offer, but we oftentimes can’t be bothered to look up the information on a real computer or print out a paper boarding pass. Addressing these concerns, Air Canada has now released a dedicated iPhone app for passengers and they’re working on a dedicated app for the BlackBerry platform as well.

It’s not quite as versatile as some other travel apps, since it will only work with Air Canada and not with other airlines, but this is still a handy tool for frequent flyers. For starters, you can use this app to keep track of your flights through the “My Flights” section. When you shake the phone, it gives you an updated status. Let’s hope they all stay “on time.”

I always check in for my flights the night before and it’s great to see that Air Canada included this functionality in the iPhone app as well. They already have a mobile-optimized website, but the check-in process has been integrated into the app as well. Check-in, select your seat, and even get an electronic boarding pass.

Yes, an electronic boarding pass. You get a 2D barcode image, along with all the other requisite information, in virtual form on your iPhone. This barcode can be scanned at the airport just like a paper boarding pass.

Other features include finding flights, reading important messages, booking rental cars, and accessing other travel links. The Air Canada iPhone App can be found in the App Store.
