PortsToronto, owner and operator of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, today announced the launch of Billy™, a new mobile app geared at making the traveller journey to and through the airport even easier.
Designed with the traveller experience in mind and launched on the heels of the opening of the 853-foot pedestrian tunnel, the Billy™ app consolidates useful information and services for travellers and offers such features as a flight-tracking tool that provides real-time flight updates; weather and traffic conditions for both departure and arrival cities; airport information, including directions to ground transportation, on-site services and airport amenities; and an in-app travel magazine that includes curated content and City Insider guides, which feature recommendations, travel suggestions and insightful articles. The content in the magazine can be downloaded for reading while inflight when Internet connections are no longer available. Billy™ is also equipped with alerts and in-app messaging that keeps travellers up to date with events that may affect their journey.
“Billy™ will provide the opportunity to bring a new level of innovation to the airport that will have a direct and positive influence on the traveller experience,” said Geoffrey Wilson, CEO, PortsToronto. “Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport has been embraced by travellers because it offers a convenient, efficient and friendly approach to travel. The opening of the tunnel in July has changed the way that travellers are accessing the airport and now the app will add value and drive engagement by offering relevant information, tools and services that make it even easier for travellers to get to their destination.”
Coming this fall, users of Billy™ will also be able to access exclusive VIP WiFi while at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport which provides faster connections and additional benefits and promotions for users.
