LOS ANGELES -- MTC Limousine & Corporate Coach launched its new app on the show floor of the Global Business Travel Association Convention this week, called MTC InFlight Reader.

The app combines the boredom-beating capabilities of the standard InFlight Reader app with an exclusive feature that tracks MTC Limousine reservations and information. The app downloads to most smartphones and tablets, accommodating a wide range of mobile devices.

Once travelers download the app and set up their account, they will have access to a library of magazines they may download and read – for free – for a full 24 hours. Once loaded, Internet access is not necessary to read their selected publications.

In addition to beating boredom, the app does double duty by ensuring travelers’ ground transportation needs are covered. The app provides easy access to MTC’s reservation system so users may book new reservations, make changes to their existing bookings.

“We are pleased to have joined forces with InFlight Digital to produce an app that helps to solve two common transportation issues: boredom and stress,” said Trevor Franklin, president of MTC Limousine & Corporate Coach, Inc. “Travelers are kept busy with 24 hours of free access to a wide range of magazines while enjoying the peace of mind that their ground transportation needs are taken care of.”

“Partnering with MTC Limousine allowed us to design an app that offered additional services to travelers that went beyond our standard Inflight Reader,” said InFlight Digital CEO Ed Young. “Our InFlight Reader app has generated a lot of buzz since its June launch, and we can expect an equal amount of attention will be generated with this latest launch.”

The MTC co-branded Inflight Reader app is the first in series of several apps that MTC has under development. Others are slated to include a passenger loyalty reward program and customer feedback system for its substantial corporate client roster.
