Smaato Mobile Advertising Award 2010 goes to the German airline
Friday 15, October 2010
Lufthansa’s iPhone application captured the Smaato Mobile Advertising Award 2010 in San Francisco earlier this month.
The Lufthansa app, developed by the Clanmo mobile interactive agency, landed the award in the branded apps category against competition from a web application from Hugo Boss, and an iPad magazine from BMW. Simultaneously, Smaato, one of the leading mobile advertising technology companies, declared the Lufthansa iPhone App the overall winner in all categories.
The 20-man international jury said the award had been granted to Lufthansa especially for the multi-functionality of its iPhone application, which was launched in February. In addition to offering users information on the Lufthansa timetable and the status of arrivals and departures, the application has a webview function that allows travelers to access flight bookings and their Miles & More mileage account, as well as other services such as mobile check-in and an overview of their flight reservations. Furthermore, users can store their frequently used connections to facilitate faster access to their personal travel data under “My Flights”.
The Smaato Award for 2010 was presented for the third time. This year, twenty finalists were shortlisted in six different categories from a huge number of nominees.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
