Sabre Corporation has announced that its travel management app, TripCase, will be available on the Apple Watch when as of April 24.
The newest version of TripCase allows Apple Watch users to access their most relevant, time-sensitive trip information – including the ability to receive real-time flight alerts at a glance of their wrist.
In addition to real-time flight alerts, travelers can access flight and hotel details from the Apple Watch, including flight status and gate number, as well as hotel address, phone number and confirmation code. With a quick tap of a button on the Apple Watch, TripCase users can save great restaurants, shops or activities they find along their journey. Additionally, travelers can access maps and directions for each activity in a trip, as well as view the local time for any destination.
An analysis of the more than 30 million trips TripCase managed in 2014 shows that 70 percent of trips with air segments experienced a flight change within 72 hours of departure. Of these, 69 percent were schedule changes or delays, 29 percent were gate changes and two percent were flight cancellations.
TripCase began integrating with wearable technologies, including popular devices such as the Pebble and Android Wear, in 2014 with enhancements that allowed users to receive important trip notifications directly on their smartwatch. TripCase was the first travel management app to send rich notifications to the new Samsung Gear S.
