Delta Airlines to offer Wireless Flight Info
Posted: 11-Dec-1999 [Source: PC Week Online]

[Service to offer flight schedules and gate information. Later in the year plans call for ticket purchase and flight change via wireless.]

Atlanta -- Because its customers are by definition mobile, Delta Airlines is testing a new service that will transmit data from its Web site to a variety of portable devices, including mobile phones and Palm Computing's Palm VII organizer.

The service, which will roll out nationwide early next year, will include basic same-day travel information such as flight schedules and gate information. Later in the year, Delta plans to let customers buy plane tickets and change flights wirelessly, according to officials at the Atlanta-based company. The service is now in beta testing.

Delta is developing the service with a user interface from Modern Media and Java and XML technology from IBM's Pervasive Computing Group.

The companies, along with Delta's subsidiary Delta Technology, are using a Java application that translates Delta's travel information into XML (extensible markup language) and IBM's transcoding technology for handheld devices.
