Yapta Launches iPhone App for Airfare Price Tracking and Refund Alerts

Yapta Mobile enables travelers to save on airfare anytime, anywhere

Seattle, WA – November 28, 2011 Yapta, the leading provider of airfare price assurance solutions for companies looking reduce T&E expenses, today announced that its core airfare price tracking and refund alert service is now available as a mobile application for iPhones.

Yapta Mobile is the travel industry’s first free smartphone app that tracks airfare prices on specific flights from hundreds of airlines around the world and alerts travelers when the price on a particular flight drops – or falls below a pre-designated price point. The app also tracks the price of airline tickets that have already been booked – and if the price drops below what was paid – it alerts the user when they’re eligible for a travel credit from the airline.

“Yapta Mobile enables travelers to be much more opportunistic about saving by providing immediate visibility into airfare decreases – and by alerting them to perishable refund opportunities anytime, anywhere,” said Tom Romary, president and CEO of Yapta. “Whether you’re traveling for business or for leisure, the app is a powerful savings tool that’s well-suited for today’s airfare pricing environment – and for the busy traveler that’s on the go.”

The app leverages Yapta’s dynamic airfare price tracking technology which has conducted more than a billion price inquiries on millions of flights, revealing more than $400 million in airfare savings for travelers. Yapta Mobile delivers pricing alerts in real time via push notifications that enable travelers to either book their flight from the airline website at a lower available price – or, if the ticket is already booked, to claim a travel credit from the airline.

Yapta Mobile is free to download and use – and can be downloaded from the Apple Store immediately at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/yapta-track-flights-get-airline/id479369088?mt=8.
