Wave goodbye across the globe

Schiphol launches English version of its Big Wave Goodbye app

Following the successful Dutch version of the ‘Big Wave Goodbye’ app, Schiphol recently launched an English version of the app. The ‘Big Wave Goodbye’ app can be used to wave goodbye to friends and loved ones using the webcam of a desktop or laptop computer.

How does the app work?

Simply go to www.schiphol.com/bigwavegoodbye, upload your video and select the person to whom you wish to wave goodbye. Next, fill in his or her date of departure and invite other friends to join you in waving goodbye. Upon departure from Schiphol, not only will the passenger be able to watch your video on their smartphone, but it will also be broadcast on the big screens at Schiphol Plaza plus the screens at the departure gates!

Since its launch in October 2012 over 10,000 people have used the Big Wave Goodbye app to wave goodbye to passengers digitally.
