Air Canada iPhone App Lets You Track Flights and Check In

Any frequent travelers out there? If you’re a big fan of Air Canada and their level of service, you’re going to be pleased to know they recently released an iPhone app. The Air Canada iPhone app will let you track flights and check in straight from your iPhone!

If I was flying Air Canada domestically, this app would be a dream with a data plan for instant updates. Here are the following highlights of the app:

My Flights: lets you keep track of your selected flights. You can “shake” to refresh the status and also do online check in!

Messages: links to important messages and your online boarding pass.

Check In:
This is pretty cool–you can check in and select your seat from the iPhone and get your electronic boarding pass.

Find Flight: Find any Air Canada or Jazz flight and add it to “My Flights”. You can search from all worldwide destinations.

More: extras include links to booking a rental car and other travel links.

Like the CBC Radio app, this first attempt at an iPhone app by Air Canada is a pretty good one. The app does the job of letting you track flights and check in straight from your iPhone. Previously you could take the website on your iPhone, but these easy to use apps are always much better.

What could make this app better? Maybe future revisions could include live flight tracking and even the ability to book flights right from the phone. Either way, this is a pretty solid app for all you Air Canada travelers out there!

Anyone going to fly Air Canada soon? Tell us where you’re going and also let us know how well this app works for you!

    Who's up for a vacation! Let's go! lol
    I was thinking of going on a trip coming up, not sure if i'd use Air Canada but this app sounds good.

    Already have a vacation planned, leaving tomorrow morning, the timing couldn't have been better! This app is great! I've already loaded in all my flights and set up text notifications both for myself and to let my ex know when we arrive and depart. It won't let me check-in, but I can't on-line either. Looks like a winner from AC!

    This is a really smart thing for any company to do. With so many iPhone users out there, having a customized app for your business can realy sway customers in your direction.

    Tried it out today but it couldn't find any of the flights I'm booked on. Strange. Maybe it only does mainline AC flights and not Jazz?

    I checked in for my flight and opted to receive an electronic boarding pass via sms. I received a message in the “my messages” section of the air canada app, but there is no link to the boarding pass from this message. I didn't receive a message in my normal text messages bank on my cell phone. Has anyone else experienced this?
