Virgin America to introduce app this summer

Will feature Spotify button to supply destination based music

Virgin America is finally introducing an app for iOS and Android.

The airline admits is has been a bit behind in doing this and plans to have its app available later this summer. Right now its in beta testing with selected frequent fliers. Other passengers can sign up here to volunteer join the test.

Passengers can book a flight, check-in, access mobile boarding passes, receive real-time flight alerts, check points balance and so on.

The app stores personal information, including favorite destinations, in order to streamline the user experience and provide personalized flight deals.

The airline has also partnered with Spotify so that after check-in passengers can stream one of the city “Mood Lists” inspired by their destination.

This integration builds on Virgin America and Spotify’s partnership last year of curating over 60 city-inspired music “Mood Lists”.

Non-premium Spotify users that launch a playlist via the app will still listen to ads and they won’t be able to select songs on-demand.
