Singapore Airlines Enhances Passenger Experience with Innovative Mobile App
Singapore Airlines has released a new mobile app that makes use of augmented reality, real-time language translation, image-based search features, and other innovative features. Built from scratch, the new app aims to improve usability, enhance customer satisfaction, and give passengers more control over their journeys, according to the airline.

The question about Qantas Airways Ltd.’s plans to start 20-hour direct flights from Sydney to London and New York isn’t why any passenger would want to take the route — it’s why any carrier would want to offer them.

Rideshare has become one of the main tenets of conference transportation, whether organizers officially include it in their meeting plans or not.
