The Windows Phone ecosystem has been on a roll in India over the last year and the juggernaut appears to be powering on into 2014. While one of India’s leading airline, Jet Airways, released a Windows Phone exclusive app last year, competing carrier SpiceJet has joined the party by launching their mobile app, exclusively for Windows Phone devices.
The app has a great, modern user-interface, although it has an awkward casing in the title – spiceJet. The app allows you to book tickets, check-in, or do a PNR lookup. You can quickly check out your recent searches or existing bookings. The app also offers a handy tap-to-call option to quickly dial their 24/7 Sales & Reservations number.
Apart from a seamless booking process, the app also offers a very well-compiled travel section called Spice Destinations. It lists all the cities in India and abroad where Spicejet flies and compiles travel, eating out, shopping, and lodging options for that city. It’s a useful, quick travel guide which you can use even if you’re not flying SpiceJet.
SpiceJet is a great example of a fine Windows Phone app from an airline. As an exclusive, it’s a great win for Microsoft India. Download the free app for Windows Phone 7.x and Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store and tell us how you like it.
