Kuwait-based developer, MobiLink has signed up with Swapcom to deliver a range of mobile data services to local services providers and operators. Mobilink has already developed 'SMS Airways' using Swapcom technology.

“The solid background of Swapcom and the good contacts we have with operators enables us to deploy quickly Value Added Services and offer time-to-market services ensuring seamless content delivery,” comments Waleed Alsayegh, CEO of Mobilink.

Service subscribers can check flight information via SMS by sending a message with a flight code to a specific short number and the service will send notification on the status of the flight. SMS Airways also allows subscribers to search for flight numbers by using the city of arrival or departure.

The service is available to all users of Kuwait International Airport.

SMS Airways was developed using Swapcom’s Multimedia Mobile Information Portal (MMIP) and the Mobile Gateway (MMG) messaging platform.

"Mobile Market is growing rapidly in the Middle-East. In this context, Swapcom's products guarantee… a decisive advantage for our customers, because they improve their wireless services range and offer them a high quality of support,” says Abderrahim Rochdi, sales director at Swapcom.

“The key success factor for Mobilink was their awareness of the local market needs in Kuwait and their ability to rapidly implement high value-added services with Swapcom technology,” he adds.
