Sydney Airport has released an Android app provide live updates on flights as well as finding your way around the airport.
As with the airport's near-identical iPhone app, the callout feature of the Android version is the ability to 'subscribe' to international and domestic flights to get handy pop-up alerts on when boarding opens, as well as changes to the flight's status.
However, this covers only flights to and from the International T1 and domestic T2 terminals – the airport advises that it doesn't have access to data from the dedicated Qantas T3 terminal.
This will include regional QantasLink flights which currently operate from T2 but later this year will shift to T3. Qantas has yet to release an Android app, but the airline says one is coming later this year.
As expected, the Android app also provides maps of the airport precinct and terminals, along with information on parking and transfers.
The Android app is also available in simplified Chinese.
“China is one of our largest and fastest growing markets so it makes sense to ensure Chinese speakers can also easily access airport information via their phone" said Sydney Airport Chief Executive Officer Kerrie Mather.
"Sydney Airport is working hard to ensure that we are 'China-ready' and is continually looking to enhance the experience of our Chinese-speaking travellers."
The official Sydney Airport app for Android is available now as a free download from the Google Play app store.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Melbourne Airport told Australian Business Traveller that "development of an Android version of our (iPhone) app is underway and we anticipate it being available in the coming months."
