SATS launches mobile app with turn-by-turn navigation

App features airport navigation, travel alerts, attraction bookings and more

SATS, Singapore Changi’s biggest ground handler has launched a mobile app that features airport navigation, travel alerts, attraction bookings and more.

Called Ready To Travel, the app is targeted at millennials in Asia.

SATS is an airport services and inflight catering company and is the biggest ground handler at Singapore’s Changi Airport.

Passengers can use the app to:

Receive notifications on the go
As passengers move through their journey, they will be prompted with information such as time to the airport, travel check-in time, boarding gate time, passport renewal, and visa applications.

Get through the airport with real-time point-to-point directions
A unique feature of the app is the ability to navigate your way through the airport with real-time point-to-point directions. Instead of a static map, passengers are guided through the airport in real-time.

At launch, users will be able to use this feature in four airports – Singapore Changi Airport, Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport, Tokyo Narita Airport and Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok Airport. More airports will be added in the coming months.

Stay connected
Passengers can buy portable, pocket-size WiFi devices and have it delivered to their homes before their trips. The WiFi connectivity is available in 50 countries

Plan and book attractions
Passengers can find information about and book more than 10,000 attractions and services in more than 90 countries.

The app is available for download on Apple App Store and Google Play.
