DSC_9294Delta Air Lines announced the release of its updated Fly Delta mobile app, adding interactive airport maps, an offline mode, support for 3D Touch, and improved seat map access.

The app now features new interactive wayfinding maps of 20 major airports, including the carrier’s hubs. Passengers can search for various areas of the airports, including gates, restaurants, and baggage claim, and the app will provide turn-by-turn walking directions.

Passengers need only to pull up their boarding pass on the app, and touch the departure or arrival city code to access the maps of the specified airport. Users can type specific or generic terms to find desired locations in the airports, such as the name of a restaurant or chain, or simply the word “food.”

The new offline mode allows travelers to access boarding pass and flight details when a data connection isn’t available.

The new 3D Touch support allows users to access shortcuts to specific functions like checking in or viewing flight status but pressing the app’s icon.

Finally, the airline improved access to seat maps so they are available directly from the results page when searching.
