The official airline app of the El Dorado Airport in Bogotá, Colombia

In 2015, El Dorado International Airport in Bogotá, Colombia approached BlueLabel to design and develop a set of iOS and Android apps for visitors to the 44th busiest airport in the world.

The airport began the project with the desire to build an eye-catching app that not only made it easy for visitors to travel through the airport and monitor their flight status, but also served to showcase the variety of vendors and service providers available within the airport.

Design, Build and Deploy

Building both iOS and Android apps for El Dorado

Initially, the airport had worked with a local app development team to create the El Dorado. However, after two months of struggling to overcome the technical and design challeneges of the project, the airport approached BlueLabel to take over development of the iOS and Android apps.

The BlueLabel app development team was tasked with a tough challenge: design, build and deploy the first iOS version of the El Dorado airline app within eight weeks.

The BlueLabel team finished the app in six weeks.

User Experience

The BlueLabel app development team created an experience that focused on the core needs of an airport traveler: navigation, flight tracking, and service directory.

The airline app gives users quick access to critical flight status and airport navigation functionalities through a simple swipe-to-reveal slide out menu, no matter where they are in the app.

The BlueLabel team and the airport settled on a blue-yellow color theme that was both visually gentle on bleary-eyed travelers and evocative of the Colombian national identity.

The design of the airline app leverages these colors along with a stylized sans-serif font and use of vibrant images to present a clean and simple app design.

iBeacon Navigation

A challenge faced by the BlueLabel app development team was in providing a reliable indoor-navigation system to help travelers chart their course through the airport. Leveraging cutting edge Bluetooth iBeacon navigation, BlueLabel teamed up with the MapsPeople indoor-navigation framework to deploy a Bluetooth iBeacons system across the airport and then integrate it with a custom mapping and navigation system built into the iOS and Android apps.

With a single tap a user of the El Dorado airline app is quickly able to pinpoint their position within the airport down to a 10-meter radius and then be provided with turn-by-turn directions to her gate or desired vendor.

Flight Tracking

Another challenge faced by the BlueLabel app development team was the integration of real-time information into the app. The BlueLabel team worked with local airport authorities to connect the El Dorado airline app to a live feed of flight data published by the airport’s internal systems.

Through this feed, the BlueLabel app development team was able to integrate a real-time listing of all flights leaving and arriving the airport-including information on delays, cancellations and gate information-directly with the app. BlueLabel further enhanced this functionality by creating an opt-in, real-time alert feature, giving travelers throughout the airport the peace of mind of knowing that the El Dorado airline app will notify them immediately of any flight status changes.


After efficient movement of aircraft, the next most important function of an airport is to keep passengers informed, well-fed and entertained.

The El Dorado airline app features a directory of all airline offices, shops, restaurants, services, and government entities. Helping those establishments to be more visible was a chief goal of the airport. The El Dorado in-app directory provides links to websites and in-app maps / navigation to the selected location, making the directory a useful tool for any visitor.
