CRUISE passengers arriving in Alicante will be able to get tourist information about the city via a mobile application developed by the Port of Alicante. The Alicante Port Authority (APA) has installed free WiFi access at the cruise terminal and distributed posters throughout the terminal with the two-dimensional QR codes which access the application.

Information leaflets in English explain how to access the codes.

APA also has created a website for cruise ships – www.miraalpuertodealicante.es – a Facebook page – www.facebook.com/lookatportofalicante – and a Twitter account – @ALCPort – as well as on other networks including YouTube and Flickr.

The application has links to Facebook, YouTube and Twitter and it is possible for passengers arrival at the port to be steamed to their social networking sites to share with family and friends.

QR code technology is relatively new to Spain, although is quite widespread in the USA and Japan where thanks to this type of code it is possible to check-in at an airport or pay for your metro train ticket.
