Long Beach Airport Releases Mobile App for Travelers

Frequent flyers and travelers visiting Long Beach alike can now do everything from check on flights to rent a car with the new Go Long Beach Airport app, free on iTunes and Google Play.


“Long Beach Airport is providing a service that helps passengers alleviate some of the discomfort of today’s travel,” said Airport Director Mario Rodriguez. “Providing a smart app for customers allows us one more outlet to be customer friendly because travelers now have flight, airport, and city information at their fingertips.”

The app allows users to track departing and arriving flights, view parking, airline and retail information as well as look up things to do while in town. It also has options for checking into the airport on social media and connects directly with the airport’s Yelp and Twitter. With Go LGB, a traveler could make sure their flight is on time, review hours for the concourse’s wine bar, review the terminal layout to see where the wine bar is in relation to the check-in area and reserve a rental car for when they land–all from their smart phone and without the necessity of being on site.

A “Visit Long Beach” tab even takes users to the Long Beach Convention and Visitor’s Bureau’s online event calendar.

Go LGB is the fifth City-released app in the “Go Long Beach” family, which provides residents with quick resource links and enhanced services to police, libraries, animal care and other city services.
