A new entry in the Top 10 free iPhone apps for Thailand is this one called Nokair. I haven’t actually flown with Nok Air before even though it is a budget airline in Thailand. However, some of the features that this app has almost makes me want to try it out! You can check schedules and prices and even make reservations. Once you have arrived at the airport you can check-in by using your iPhone and an e-boarding pass will show on your iPhone screen. You can even choose which seat you want by looking at a seat plan of the airplane.
The CEO of Nok Airline, Patee Sarasin (@Patee122), uses his iPhone 3GS a lot and by his own admission is addicted to twitter. So it is natural that Nok Air would be the first Thai airline to help their customers in this way. The following is an extract from an interview he did last December in The Nation:
“Twitter is a part of my life,” Patee said. “I tweet every day. Tweeting is the first and the last of my daily activities. Sometimes, I tweet continuously for six hours…. Twitter helps me be a better typist in Thai. I usually tweet via my iPhone 3GS. I love it. Twitter can also release me from being stuck behind a desktop. It helps me to be constantly communicating with people wherever and whenever I am. I can share my experiences, my expressions and even my photos with my friends in real time.”
