Kiwi.com launches new augmented reality app feature

Top travel technology website, Kiwi.com, have incorporated a new feature to its mobile application, which uses the latest in augmented reality technology to measure cabin baggage without needing to be at the airport.

Kiwi.com have unveiled a new feature to their mobile application for all Android and iOS devices that enables customers to measure the dimensions of their cabin baggage using the latest in AR technology. The new function pairs with flights booked through Kiwi.com and curates bespoke cabin bag dimension requirements (LxWxH) for the specific airline the ticket is booked with. The application uses the devices’ camera to generate a virtual box around the baggage and the dimensions are measured from this.

Alison Couper of Kiwi.com said “It’s a really efficient new function to the app which I think all Kiwi.com customers will find helpful. Traveling can be a stressful experience and it’s important for the modern traveler to be in the know. This is the first of many updates we plan to roll out in 2019. We’re really looking forward to hearing what everyone thinks of it”.
