EgyptAir has launched a mobile portal in
cooperation with Star Alliance. The new website enables EgyptAir
customers to use their mobile phones to access the different
services available from the airline.
EgyptAir, South African Airways and TAP Portugal
are the first Star Alliance member carriers to launch individual
mobile portals under the new Common IT Mobile Platform Initiative
of Star Alliance. Under this new initiative, each airline has
designed their portal to their own specification.
“The Star Alliance Common IT Mobile Platform is
a further example of the advantages provided by a standardised
solution within the alliance. With one technological base now in
place, more carriers will be able to offer mobile services, as the
integration between airline systems and the mobile portal is
simple and flexible,” said Jaan Albrecht, CEO Star Alliance.
The mobile portal is specifically aimed at providing
information and services to EgyptAir customers. The mobile
services are being rolled out in various stages and presently
encompass offerings such as flight schedules, real time of EgyptAir flight departures and arrivals, lounge information,
currency converter, and weather for next five days in the arrival
destination, baggage tracing and information on destinations.

Flyer Programme status, online check-in with seat maps for seat
selection, and mobile boarding passes with 2D bar codes and SMS
irregularity notification are expected to be made available in the coming
