Easy journey through Gatwick

easyJet, now the UK’s leading airline, launched an innovative update to its award-winning app which is designed to provide helpful and timely guidance, directions and essential travel updates to passengers travelling from Gatwick Airport.
easyJet’s ‘Mobile Host’ is a joint initiative with Gatwick and combines live data from the airport's information systems, using Google indoor maps, together with a passenger’s booking details, location and flight time.  The result is personalised instructions and updates for passengers during their journey. 

Included in the package are check-in reminders and confirmation of booked baggage allowances; directions to bag drop, departures and gate locations; and real-time gate and baggage belt notifications delivered direct to the phone.
Initially the service has been launched on iPhones for passengers travelling to and from the airport, easyJet’s biggest base.  The feature is available in seven languages and will significantly enhance the overall passenger experience every time they fly with easyJet.
