SINGAPORE (Aug 11): SATS, the provider of Gateway Services and Food Solutions, is launching a mobile travel concierge app, Ready To Travel, at the NATAS Fair today.

As users move in their journey timeline from pre-trip to near-trip to on-trip, they will be prompted by the app with vital travel information such as time to the airport, travel check-in time, boarding gate time, passport renewal, and visa applications.

Singaporeans can now also eRegister with Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) of Singapore using Ready To Travel. The app also pushes travel notices and advisories to Singaporean travellers that are specific to their countries of destination.

A unique feature of the app is its ability to help user navigate their way through the airport with real-time point-to-point directional information. Instead of a static map, users will be 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. SATS will add more airports in the coming months.

Catering to the need for millennial travellers to stay connected, Ready To Travel also allows users to purchase pocket WiFi services and have it delivered to their homes before their trips. With WiFi connectivity extending to 50 countries, users will be sure to stay connected throughout their travels.

Alex Hungate, SATS President and CEO, says, “With Ready To Travel, SATS becomes the first ground handler to offer a seamless service that integrates the physical and digital aspects of the customer experience.”

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

Shares in SATS last traded at $4.83 on Thursday.
