PORTUGAL. ANA Aeroportos de Portugal has launched a new website and app as part of a new digital strategy being introduced by parent VINCI Airports.

New functionalities range from lounge reservation, fast track and hotel options to an improvement to the parking reservation engine. ANA also noted that content would adapt to the passenger’s status (whether they are departing, arriving or on stopover) and that the desktop and mobile platforms would be integrated.

The new image and functionalities will debut at ANA’s airports in Portugal before being implemented in the other airport websites and apps in VINCI’s portfolio.
