Star Alliance Launches Farefinder App

Following the recent launch of its Navigator iPhone app, the Star Alliance network has now become the first airline alliance to introduce an easy and simple to use fare finder mobile application.

Christopher Korenke, Vice President Commercial at Star Alliance said: "With the Star Alliance FareFinder we have responded to our customers' requests for a mobile app which allows them access to our member airlines' fares. Alongside our existing popular Star Alliance Navigator iPhone app, it places us in pole position in terms of providing customers mobile access to essential alliance travel information."

Using the new FareFinder app, customers can search for either one-way or return fares for flights between any two airports on the Star Alliance network. In order to obtain the information that best matches the customers' wishes, the app allows for additional search criteria like number of passengers, arrival or departure times, class of service, number of stops, transfer airports and point of sale.

The app also displays availability so the customers can then select the airline(s) they wish to travel on. Guided by the FareFinder app, customers can then book via the appropriate airline call centre or website. The Star Alliance FareFinder app was developed and is powered by ITA Software.

The FareFinder is available as a free download in English from www.staralliance.com or from the Apple app store. Further versions running on other operating systems are due to be released in the foreseeable future.
