The Ottawa International Airport Authority has launched a new mobile app for iOS and Android called FlyCANADA, which gives users information and tools that will make their travel experience simpler and more enjoyable.

The app is a great tool for passengers travelling through the Ottawa International Airport, which provides helpful information to get you to your destination as quickly as possible. FlyCANADA includes information like arrival and departure times, security wait times, and it allows you to use your device’s GPS location to get around the airport.

In a statement Mark Laroche, CEO and Airport Authority President, said:

“This app is about providing a better customer experience by keeping our passengers informed and more prepared. If something is happening that affects flight schedules or the airport, we will tell our app users about it through push notifications.”

    Wouldn’t it have made more sense to call this FlyOttawa?

    Seems like this could have been made through a dedicated, platform agnostic mobile site instead. Delivering unnecessary info through apps instead of the web is a trend soon to end thankfully.
