Wakanow launches Blackberry Mobile App

Wakanow, Nigeria’s leading travel portal, has just launched it Blackberry Mobile app. Wakanow provides consumers everything they need for researching, planning, and purchasing a whole trip. They do not only help you to plan your trip, they offer you great travel experience. The company constantly seeks to address different consumer needs like families booking a summer vacation to individuals arranging a quick weekend getaway.

The Wakanow portal also provides direct access to one of the broadest selections of travel deals and services through its North American and localized version in Nigeria. Wakanow features airline tickets, hotel reservations, car rentals and many other travel services from a broad selection of partners. Up till now, the service has solely be available online through the company’s website. This has changed now with the launch of the Blackberry App.

The Blackberry Mobile App:

With the FREE Wakanow.com app, travellers will be able to do the following from the Blackberry devices:

  • Find and book all international and domestic airlines in Nigeria on the go.
  • Find and book over 45000 domestic and international hotels on the go.
  • Book your London 2012 Olympic packages on the go.
  • Receive airline and hotel promos instantly.
  • Access reservations (past and future) even when offline.
  • Manage your account or book as a guest user.
  • Pay in Naira at any bank or with Wakanow credit for all bookings.
  • Book and “Pay at Hotel” option for domestic hotels.

This is definitely a good move by the company to ease the process of booking and paying for flight tickets and hotel bookings. While we understand the reason for deploying the Blackberry version of its app first, we believe that the company is leaving behind the greater percentage of the consumers who are on other platforms especially the Nokia smartphones and Android platforms.
