Designed to work with more than 3,000 mobile devices, Mobile Emirates.com ensures that the Emirates website is downloaded in the appropriate format for each specific mobile device, allowing customers to perform a multitude of tasks including booking and managing a flight, mobile check-in, searching flight schedules and status and checking the in-flight amenities available on a specific flight.
Russell Sheldon, Emirates senior vice president, Network Sales and Passenger Development said: "Consumers are far more mobile than ever before. There is a constant need for products and services to cater to the fast paced lifestyle that today's individuals lead, people want it here and now, without exception.
"Emirates has always been committed to offering our customers simple and efficient ways to interact with us and we are confident that Mobile Emirates.com will help us to further achieve this."
Customers must have an internet enabled device to access Mobile Emirates.com. Once they log on to www.emirates.com they will be automatically redirected to the mobile optimised version of the website.
At launch, the site will be available worldwide in the English language only.
