3 Ways App In The Air Can Help You Breeze Through The Airport Post-Covid 

With long check-in lines and unpredictable flight changes, the airport struggle can be REAL. As countries begin to re-open, we’re all witnessing the ways in which travel will change – possibly forever. If one thing is clear, it’s that knowing what to expect before leaving for the airport will make air travel better not only for frequent fliers but for airlines, airports, and destinations serving them. 

From packing the right essentials to downloading the best apps, there are endless ways to prepare for travel in the current climate. In the past, I’ve shared the magic that *is* App In The Air. In case you need a reminder, here are just a few ways that App in the Air can make your flight process easier: 


  • Check-In Online – You can automatically check-in online before flying, which not only saves you time but also helps to reduce physical contact at check-in. 

  • Download Your Boarding Pass – You can download your boarding pass pre-departure in order to head past gate agents and straight to security. 

  • Check Your Baggage Size – With many airlines having strict weight & size requirements, ensure that your baggage fits the standard ahead of time. Bye Bye baggage fees!

  • Receive Flight Notifications/Updates – Want real-time flight updates, timelines, and alerts? This app will send them straight to your phone or email so that you never miss a flight! You’ll real-time information to keep you 

  • Manage Flights And Reward Programs – Tired of downloading and managing several flight apps all at once? Track your flights and loyalty points across 200 different programs. 

  • Book Flights and hotels – If the above isn’t enough to convince you, know that you can search for the best flights and hotels in-app. Apply the in-app filter to search for plane features like Wifi, power outlets, airline alliances, & more. 

  • Become Carbon Neutral – Opt to offset carbon emissions with every flight you take! 


Needless to say, this app is essential for frequent flyers. You basically have a flight assistant in the palm of your hand. In addition, they’ve gone above & beyond to provide new COVID  Restriction and Health tools for the foreseeable future. You’ll need to stay up-to-date with the latest travel regulations that are issued in every country if you plan to travel by plane. They’ve launched a new range of tools to make travel easier in this ‘new normal’. Now more than ever, it’s important to be prepared in order to avoid or limit any logistical issues. From knowing the required travel documents to specific airline cancellation policies, these features can help you breeze through the airport


  • Country To Country Travel Restrictions Guide – Due to varying and ever-changing restrictions, country-hopping may prove to be more difficult than ever. App in the Air’s new landing page displays an easy to use country to country or airline-specific search option, providing the latest info on departure and arrival destinations. You’ll be able to access all government restrictions, airline standards, and airport rules needed to travel safely. 

  • In-App Health Filters – Are you already side-eying airlines? Well, you can now use filters to determine which airlines are actually implementing health standards like mask requirements, empty middle seats, and free cancellations. 

  • Useful In-App Alerts/Reminders App In The Air was already killing the game with detailed and useful flight notifications but they’ve instituted additional health-specific reminders to keep you safe. You’ll receive alerts for travel advisories, important health info, PPE, and health assessment standards. 


Finally, you’ll receive real-time updates on prohibited flights, changes, and cancellations. Many countries are adjusting their policies by the day, so this is extremely necessary at the moment. 

As a bonus, App in the Air is honoring healthcare heroes around the world by offering a free lifetime membership! We LOVE to see it. To download App in the Air and be up-to-date on the latest travel updates and restrictions, head HERE!
