The Caribbean destination of St Kitts has launched its first mobile app developed in partnership with British Airways and owner of The Telegraph, Telegraph Media Group.

The free iOS and Android app offers visitors information, insider knowledge, reviews and advice while they are on the go as well as latest flight offers.

The app, the first Telegraph Travel App to be produced, also provides a trip planning function, maps and social media and internet sharing functionality.

St Kitts Tourism Authority chief executive Racquel Brown, said: "This is an exciting new development for St. Kitts, particularly as it is a first for the destination while also representing the first of the Telegraph Travel Apps to be launched.

“With consumers increasingly using their mobile devices to search for holiday information, it is essential we keep our visitors up-to-date; and I am thrilled that the partnership with Telegraph Media Group and British Airways has secured this most innovative product for the destination."

Charles Starmer-Smith, head of travel for Telegraph Media Group, added: "Telegraph Travel is delighted to team up with St Kitts to launch the first Telegraph Travel destination app.

“With expert advice, interactive mapping and inspiring itineraries at your fingertips, this essential app will allow people to see this enticing Caribbean Island like never before.

“Not only is it free to use (any roaming charges are avoided thanks to its cutting-edge GPS capabilities) it is also entirely free to download thanks to this unique partnership - yet another example of St Kitts' commitment to innovation in travel."
