SIA, Google hook up for travel, flight info feature

SINGAPORE Airlines (SIA) customers who book through SIA's website will be able to view important travel information with Google Now before their flight departure.

This includes updates on flight schedule, the airport terminal as well as departure gate for flights, in addition to other information such as traffic and weather conditions at the destination.

This feature is available via the Google Search app for iOS devices on Apple's App Store, and is built into Android 4.1+ devices. To activate Google Now, users will have to install the Google Search App and log in with their Google account. No installation is required for Android devices.

"We are constantly seeking opportunities to improve our customers' travel experience with us. The integration of our website with Google Now will reduce the hassle of having to remember important travel information and provide customers with relevant information about their destinations," said SIA's senior vice-president (sales and marketing) Chin Yau Seng.
