India's Jet Airways follows up Nokia-clad planes with a very nice app for Windows Phone

If you recall, all the way back at the beginning of last year, India's Jet Airways helped celebrate the release of the Lumia 800 in India by draping many of their planes in Nokia advertisements.

They have since followed up with a fantastic app for Windows Phone 7.X and 8, which came out at the beginning of May. The Jet Airways app covers you from booking, to flight status to rewards. 

We may have missed it at the beginning of the month, but here's your chance to play catchup with us!

This full-featured app, which was developed in association with Nokia, is India's first native airline app of its kind for any mobile platform.

"This will be India's first NATIVE app for an airline on any mobile platform which will help travelers to access information and book tickets seamlessly. Nokia and Jet Airways have come together to help make travel planning convenient, simple and smart. Today a smartphone is intrinsic to the way we live and we believe this is a step towards creating pioneering travel apps for the airline industry", said Gerard Rego, Director Developer Experience, Nokia India.

Features include:

  • Book Flights - Pay securely using your credit card. Also Pin your booked itinerary as a Tile on your phone
  • JetPrivilege Loyalty Program– Enroll or Access your JetPrivilege Account on the go
  • Flight Status - Check real-time flights status by searching with your flight number, airport or route
  • Flight Status Notification – Register for your flight status and get notified on any updates
  • Get updates on the latest News and Special Offers
  • Feedback - Share your experience on our services.

You can download it for free here.

Sarang68 says:

So,what's your point? Care to elaborate?

gokkenath says:

Dude wp fast growing in India .. Mainly low budget phones. Nokia Lumia 520 sold out in India 2 days before

pankaj981 says:

Probably more than the that

blnwp says:

Honestly I don't know whether current demographics Lumia is targeting in India match with flight travellers. Let's see where it goes.

rockstarzzz says:

Of course it does! India has 29 States and most of them connected with Jet Airways and India lives way more luxurious than any European or American!

Etios says:

Honestly, you are an idiot, hope you atleast make the minimum wage.

Nice update.All we need is some good games for 512 Ram lumia series also.
 

gamepop says:

Next India trip , I will use jet airways exclusively

One question. If this is a recent development, why the hell is Lumia 800 featured?

Etios says:

Use your brain and learn to read the article. Read the 1st line to get the answer to your question.

I read the article. What I was saying that they are still there.

Tips_y says:

Because repainting planes is expensive so they don't make a habit of repainting them every year! The ad will get replaced when it becomes necessary to repaint the plane.

Now if those countries you choose can be added in a LongListSelector that would be great
