Mumbai: Jet Airways has announced the integration of Google Now into its booking system for guests booking flights on www.jetairways.com and the Jet Airways mobile apps. Google Now will show guests timely and relevant updates through Google Now flight cards.

Google Now is a feature of the Google Search app that delivers the information you care about, without having to search for it. When you choose the cards most relevant to you, Google Now learns how to help manage your day, letting you focus on what matters.

From knowing the weather before you start your day, to planning the best route to avoid traffic, or even checking your favourite team’s score while they’re playing, Google Now brings you the information you want, when you need it.

Jet Airways is the first Indian airline to integrate Google Now which updates guests about their upcoming flights, provides flight status, and information about the departure time and terminal. 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, as part of the Google Search App. Guests using iPhones and iPads will need to download the free Google Search App.

Jet Airways guests who make a booking through their website or the Jet Airways Mobile App and indicate/sync their Gmail address in the booking will be able to view travel information in Google Now several hours before their flight departure. Information includes updates on their flight schedule, and the airport terminal for their flight. This information is automatically updated in Google Now.

If the flight is delayed or the status changes, the latest information will be reflected in the Google Now card via Google Search. Google Now additionally provides relevant information about the destination like weather, local happenings, updates and much more.

Gaurang Shetty, Senior VP – Commercial, Jet Airways said “With the increased focus on technology to enhance our guests travel experience, the integration of Google Now provides us the opportunity to present guests with customized and relevant information in a seamless and user friendly format. We hope our guests benefit from this efficient application designed to simplify and enhance their travel.”
