Jet Airways launches an Android app, iOS coming soon!

At last year’s hangar visit with Jet Airways, there was discussion that Jet Airways would launch apps for the various smartphones out in the market. After all, a mobile phone strategy is not just a luxury anymore but a need for the frequent flyer who has to manage a life on the go.

However, it turned out that 9W’s initial focus was on the lower spectrum of the smartphone market, maybe they were trying to iron out the kinks by first focussing on the Windows and the Blackberry platform.

However, the good news is, that just last Friday, Jet Airways launched an Android app. Now I don’t have an Android phone to take this app for a test drive, but here are some screenshots from the Google Play store.

  • Flight Status Notification: Register for your flight status and get notified on any updates

Also, on Twitter, 9W confirmed that the iOS app would be on its way soon.

  1. Found out abt the app from this blog..thanks a lot!!

    Amazing… even after logging in to my Jet Account, i have never been able to get the dashboard open to see the miles accumulated or do anything, in fact!! (i keep getting the login screen eventhough on top it shows me as logged in.. reset the password a dozen times, no use either)

    However, this app works perfectly!! was able to see the miles accumulated for the 1st time!!. Looking forward to booking using the same in the near future.
