Attendee Choice Award: Delta

The Delta mobile app has been designed to provide Delta air line travelers with a faster, more informed travel experience. Designed to make flying with Delta Air Lines even more convenient, travelers can see their SkyMiles balance and status, look-up flight schedules, complete mobile check-in, save and use e-boarding passes, track flights and view upcoming trips. With the BlackBerry® Push Service, customers get near real-time notifications, such as flight schedule and gate changes along with the capability to re-book a cancelled or delayed flight – all from within the app. The app also cleverly uses the BlackBerry smartphone camera to setup a parking reminder to help when returning from a trip. The Delta app was built in partnership with Kony Solutions.
