Selling old mobile phone may be worthwhile for jet-setters

Frequent flyers may find selling an old mobile and upgrading to one of the latest smartphones is now even more worthwhile.

Qatar Airways has joined the list of carriers to offer an enhanced online service that can be accessed from handsets.

The company has teamed up with Mobiga, the mobile content optimisation firm, to design and produce a version of the airline's website especially for phones.

It allows users to check-in for flights, check service information and select seats for their journey.

Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways' chief executive officer, says: "Our mobile service offering integrates seamlessly with our operations globally and encourages our customers to self-service, whenever and wherever they prefer."

People who fly with the carrier may find upgrading to a modern smartphone, perhaps funded by the sale of their old mobile, makes travelling significantly easier.

Last month, British Airways launched an iPhone app that allowed members of its Executive Club to check-in from their mobile phone.
