Bienvenido, Bienvenue and Willkommen to the River
30 August 2016
London’s leading river bus operator, MBNA Thames Clippers has released its in:flow visitor app in French, German and Spanish. The geo-location based app for visitors to the capital now delivers a real-time audio guide to the Capital with the three additional language options.
To date, the app has seen over 5,000 downloads since its launch six months ago. That’s over 5,000 tourists in the Capital finding out more about the iconic landmarks as they sail along the Thames and listen on their headphones. Tourists can also utilise the on-screen attraction details such as opening hours and directions from their location to the venue. In addition, in:flow features moneysaving offers for attractions, restaurants and more in London, all served to a mobile device based on the location along the Thames.
Sean Collins, co-founder and CEO of MBNA Thames Clippers, said:
“We dipped our toe in the water with a tourist app at the end of last year after listening to passenger demand and the response has been fantastic. Introducing further language options means that more visitors to the capital can enjoy exploring London by river and travelling to some of the great attractions and iconic landmarks that we’re lucky enough to have along our 25 kilometre route on the Thames.”
MBNA Thames Clippers is the fastest and most frequent fleet on the river, connecting some of the capital’s top attractions and providing passengers with the opportunity to take in the iconic London skyline from the river along the way. Tickets from Central London to East London cost £6.50 for an adult single journey and £3.25 for a child single journey when using contactless or Oyster to pay as you go.
