UAE based Etihad Airways has launched a unique online mapping tool in partnership with the professional network site LinkedIn that gives its users easy access to interact with their global network of LinkedIn contacts.
The mapping tool is “Etihad Mapped-Out”. It allows users to search their connections by geographical location as well as by industry and overlays their locations on a map. This makes it easier for business travelers to connect with, as well as arrange meetings with, their contacts as they travel.
Users can also view the profiles of their first and second degree connections on the map itself and get in touch with both first degree and second degree connections through the application.
