“The Air India mobile app is our flagship digital channel through which we connect with our guests and delight them on the day of travel. It is a true embodiment of our technology approach, customer-obsessed, design-rich, cloud-only, mobile-friendly, data-driven, and AI-infused. Our app features path breaking innovations such as the airline industry’s very first generative AI virtual assistant AI.g,” says Satya Ramaswamy, Chief Digital and Technology Officer, Air India.

The airline adds that its new features include a splash screen with information most relevant to customers, easy-to-access information about upcoming trips, including the dining menu onboard, timely notifications, intuitive loyalty portal, a world-leading GenAI virtual assistant, and a pioneering ‘flight status’ feature that even provides information about the incoming aircraft for the flight.

“The app is on a journey of continuous improvement and more industry-leading innovations are on their way. We sincerely appreciate this recognition by the Stevie awards,” Ramaswamy adds.

The statement adds that its other features, like an easy-to-use baggage tracking capability and comprehensive computer-vision capabilities are in the pipeline. The app has garnered diverse praise from its users in the app stores and has a 4.7 rating in the Apple iOS app store in India, which is the best rating of any airline from India and is among the best global airlines in their home markets.

“We are impressed by the Air India app’s dynamic splash, whisking users away to exotic destinations. The Flight Status feature shines as the showstopper, transforming travel uncertainties into reassuring snapshots of real-time information. With AI.g as a virtual concierge and personalised journeys through My Trips, the app elevates the travel experience, making it not just a journey but a rich narrative waiting to unfold,” says a member of the jury.
