Pittsburgh International Airport in Partnership with ProDIGIQ Upgrades its Mobile App to Enhance Real-Time Alerts in Wake of COVID-19
Thousand Oaks, CA, March 30th, 2020 – In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) in collaboration with a leading aviation technology company, ProDIGIQ, has upgraded their state-of-the-art mobile apps to provide real-time COVID-19 alerts and updates to its passengers. Through PIT and ProDIGIQ’s swift action, PIT’s more than 8 million annual passengers and employees will now receive up-to-the-minute updates regarding the evolving pandemic. PIT’s official airport app is available on both the Android and iOS platforms.
Originally, the PIT app was heavily used by passengers to receive a plethora of pertinent real-time information such as arrivals, departures, security wait times, parking capacity, shuttle information and more. Now, in addition to the COVID-19 real-time alerts, the mobile app will also provide passengers with helpful reference information including health travel tips and description of PIT’s new COVID-19 protocols. To ensure that passengers easily see the alerts, PIT and ProDIGIQ focused on designing the COVID-19 alert window to provide maximum exposure. COVID-19 alerts pop up on the mobile app’s home screen and are displayed in a bright yellow background.
PIT’s priority is the safety and well-being of its passengers and employees. Through the addition of this new COVID-19 alerting feature, PIT’s passengers can be rest assured that they will be provided with critical up-to-the-minute information during this looming outbreak.
