Emirates is set to be the first airline in the Middle East to offer an app for the Apple Watch.

The UAE carrier has announced the launch of a Watch app that will work with Emirates’ existing iPhone app, to provide travellers with itinerary details, flight information and other information.

"In today’s connected world, mobile technology plays an increasingly important role in the overall travel experience of our passengers. The Apple Watch platform allows us to connect with travellers on a more personal level by providing real time information throughout their journey," commented Alex Knigge, senior vice president, Digital at Emirates. "Our team developed the Emirates app for Apple Watch with modern travellers in mind, making sure this wearable technology delivers key information, with a simple glance at their wrist."

The Emirates app for Apple Watch is an extension of the Emirates iPhone app; it was designed as a companion for travellers, delivering dynamic and context-specific data such as live flight status updates. The app is available in English, French and German.

Apple Watch is due to launch on 24th April.
