On the Go and in the Know with VPS

You’re on the move. As a result, you are using your smartphone more often than your laptop to get information. Whether it’s news, emails, weather updates, or travel itinerary; you’re looking to the device in your hand to find out what’s next. Full-featured websites offer a lot of content and take advantage of the real estate afforded to them by laptop and desktop computers’ display area. Unfortunately, mobile devices struggle to display the same content in an easy to navigate way. Our site was no different. You asked for a mobile friendly version of flyvps.com. We heard you, and we’ve responded.

Just launched, is our new mobile website. You can have all of your travel info in a clean, easy to navigate interface, right in the palm of your hand. The address is the same but the look is all new! Now, you can search flights, real-time arrivals and departures, travel information, and ground transportation with your thumbs. There are even links to our Facebook and Twitter spaces so that you can be even more connected with what’s going on at the Northwest Florida Regional Airport. Plus, if you want to search for something that you saw on the full version of the site, a link to it is available on the home page of the mobile site.

Five icons across the top of the screen will get you anywhere you need to go within the site. With just a few taps of your thumb you can have all of the information that you need.

From a recent press release:
“Mobile device users will notice a more streamlined, abbreviated version of our robust, main site to help find important information faster on the go,” said Airport’s Business Development Manager, Mike Stenson. “It’s another way we want to exceed our customers’ expectations and make flying from your hometown airport even easier!”

The site was designed using the concept of “thumb navigation” which allows for one-hand easy access to any mobile user browsing the website. Checking on the status of a flight, or looking for airline or local taxi information, is as simple as logging onto FlyVPS.com from your mobile device. As a bonus, you’ll find quick links to the VPS Facebook and Twitter pages to keep you in the loop on the latest news when you are on the go. Find us on Facebook at facebook.com/flyvps or @ Message us on Twitter (@FlyVPS) and let us know what you think.

We want to hear from you. If there is something you feel is missing from the mobile site or if something doesn’t load properly, let us know, and we’ll see what we can do.
