Global airport app FLIO and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol have joined forces in a new “ground-breaking, first-time agreement”, following last month’s investment from EasyJet.
The agreement with Schiphol is a first between an airport and FLIO. The airport will officially adopt and support the app; Amsterdam Airport Schiphol’s media division will sell advertising in FLIO and market the app to its passengers, sharing in revenues from the sale of Schiphol’s retail and other commercial services for its passengers when they are generated through FLIO.
FLIO founder and CEO Stephan Uhrenbacher said: “We are delighted to be able to announce this official tie-up with Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. We will be working with one of the most digital of all airports in Europe to jointly develop a digital channel to reach their passengers. Their decision to officially recognise FLIO and to enter into a formal commercial agreement creates great opportunities for both of us and a very important demonstration of how FLIO can be a collaborative asset for all airports.”
Schiphol Media sales director Arthur de Groot added: ‘This agreement offers Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and its’ brand partners yet another opportunity to interact with our passengers in a very relevant way thus improving the passenger experience at the airport.’
Flio is a global airport app offering travellers a one-stop source for “all things airport”, providing comprehensive information at airports around the world, easy access to public Wi-Fi, real – time departures and arrivals data and insider hints and tips.
As well as providing valuable airport information and tips FLIO allows its users to find an airport’s shopping and food beverage services and paid for commercial services such as VIP lounges, fast track security and transportation.
These airport services can be booked and purchased through FLIO, with the user never having to leave the application.
