[Hong Kong] “My Flight”, the official mobile app for the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) won Gold at the Hong Kong ICT Awards (HKICTA) 2018 in the Smart Mobility category. With Cherrypicks’ Starbeacon installed throughout HKIA, “My Flight” is able to offer a better passenger experience. Through “My Flight”, visitors can locate all airport amenities on the indoor map guide and follow the turn-by-turn wayfinding guide to their destination. By simply tilting their phone, visitors will be able to toggle the live AR navigation function for Augmented Reality (AR) directions.
The intelligent boarding alert allows passengers to explore the airport freely knowing they will receive a personalized boarding alert depending on their distance to the boarding gate. To give visitors the feeling of home, they can use the AR signage translation to instantly translate all indoor signage into the language of their choice. Congratulations to HKIA and “My Flight” for winning Gold at HKICTA 2018.
