Global airport app FLIO has partnered with Plaza Premium Lounges, which will allow FLIO’s 100,00 registered users to find, book and pay for any of 51 Plaza Premium Lounges in 24 international airports worldwide.
Among the major airports housing Plaza Premium Lounges are Hong Kong, Changi, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai Pudong, New Delhi, Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Toronto and Vancouver.
FLIO users can use the app to book and pay in advance or pay on the day while they are in the air-port, accessing the best available same day or ‘walk up’ rate avail-able.
“We’re already partnered with Swissport’s Aspire lounges at their UK airport locations and we found out very quickly that FLIO users are very keen not just to discover services like this, but to be able to book and pay without having to switch to another app or device,” said Stephan Uhrenbacher, CEO and Founder.
“Our partnership with Plaza Premium has massively expanded the universe of paid for lounges that our ever-growing user base can go to.
“Find, book and pay, all in one app, is of course the ultimate end game for the service and retail providers that FLIO users can access so pre-order and prepayment are two additional features that we are developing for FLIO,” he added.
FLIO recently launched an Android version of the app, virtually doubling its registered users.
“We now have more than 100,000 downloads and we are pleased to be seeing a very high level of monthly repeat users which indicates that we are attracting frequent travelers and that our location-based push notifications are working extremely efficiently and generating multiple opportunities to sell,” said Uhrenbacher.
FLIO also offers one-click access to the official free Wi-Fi at 400 airports and live information about arrival, departures times and gates at 900 airports, among many other services.
