Genève Aéroport (GVA) - App Review

This is THE App for anyone flying into or out of Geneva airport, or anyone accompanying them. This is an example to airport Websites that give inaccurate and usually incomplete information, or who seem to delight in still using Flash. How many times have YOU encountered the 'flash not installed' problem that seems to almost give some airports an additional layer of protection... if their customers cannot see what is happening on their iPhones then they won't complain; who do they think they are kidding.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The welcome tab gives you updated general information about the airport status.
The flights tab lists all incoming and outgoing flights for today and tomorrow. You can pick whichever flights are appropriate, and if you know the incoming flight on which your outgoing flight relies, tracking this gives additional valuable information. An additional 'My Flights' tab enables you to check which flights you are tracking. Once you have set this up, you will receive push notifications for estimated arrival time (as soon as the incoming plane departs from its previous destination, with updates if there are any changes, together with baggage reclaim number. For outgoing flights there are also the time updates, as well as gate number.
In addition to this there is information on space availability at all the car parks, as well as a price calculator so that you can establish the relative costs.
To finish off there is 'More' tab which includes detailed maps of the airport as well as a list of contacts so that you can directly contact any required service... and as an added bonus you just need to press on any of these to be put straight through; no copying and pasting of numbers.

Cost
It's free.

Indispensability
If you are flying into or out of Geneva, or are meeting someone, it is the best. You can view it as indispensable, or put up with the same frustration you have endured for many years.

Dependability
The App occasionally crashes for no good reason... mainly when scrolling rapidly through flights.

Security
No issues.
