EaseMyTrip has introduced an Android mobile app that it claims will allow airline passengers to chat among themselves while flying.
The app uses the offline mode during the flight itself, but allows app users to communicate with each other and allows for a hassle-free booking experience to the users of any Android device without additional fees.
Claiming to have more than 1 million users accessing the EaseMyTrip mobile travel app, travellers are able to search and book flight tickets for all major domestic and international destinations as well as book hotels and bus tickets.
The app receives around 1,200 to 1,300 bookings daily due to its competitive fares.
EaseMyTrip says the android app’s distinguishing feature is its Airplane Chat function that helps to break the monotony of airline journeys where passengers are asked to keep their phone on flight mode.
At this time, they can chat with their co-passengers using this android app through Bluetooth of mobile phones. There is no internet connection requirement.
“Long-haul flights happened to be really boring for us and even in-flight entertainment could not help to kill the time during the journeys. So, I always used to think that there should be something that not just keeps us engaged, but can also help in networking with like-minded people… we finally agreed to develop a tool that may help travellers to spend their travel time comfortably,” said EaseMyTrip CEO, Nishant Pitti.
