“Nowadays people travel around the world like never before – we live in the age of global movement, which implies substantial time, financial and emotional investments – noted Evgeniya Satska, UIA Corporate Press Secretary. – It’s only logical, that while investing into travelling, we expect a certain level of comfort – both physical and psychological, which depends a lot on who is travelling next to you. It used to be a kind of a lottery, but now, due to the launch of NextTo social network for tourists, passengers can choose fellow travellers on their own. This is not just a new level of comfort. It allows to spend travelling time more efficiently – communicating with interesting people, making new connections and learning about the world. UIA is the first airline in the world to take part in such an interesting and useful project”.
Mobile check-in on UIA flights is currently available for NextTo users, as well as choosing fellow travellers who are on the same flight or in the same place – hotel, landmark, location, etc. NextTo is using a global flights’ database and works for almost all regular flights in the world, thus allowing to find companions in any part of the world.
