It’s been a long time coming, but Alaska Airlines officially has an app out for Windows Phone. It was this past December that the company took to Twitter to tease a Windows Phone app for some time in early 2014. While we wouldn’t consider May ‘early’, we’re very happy to see Alaska Airlines join the fray.
Alaska Airlines (alaskaair.com) is basically the unofficial airlines of Microsoft and therefore Windows Phone. Like Microsoft, Alaska Airlines is based out of Seattle and a lot of Microsofties fly Alaska Airlines. The app is brand new in the Windows Phone Store and brings the following features for you all to enjoy:
- Book a flight and select your seat
- Change your seat prior to departure
- Check in as early as 24 hours before your flight
- Pull up a mobile boarding pass - no more paper
- See your flight schedule and boarding time
- Share your travel itinerary by email with friends and family
- Track your Mileage Plan (TM) balance
- Keep an eye on First Class and Standby wait lists
- Add flight details to your smartphone's calendar
- Shop one-way, round trip, and multi-leg travel
- Find your Alaska Airlines reservations
- Track flights taken by friends and family
Wow. Talk about a fully featured app right out of the gate (kind of a flight pun, right?). Version 1.0 packs a punch and we can’t wait to use it the next time we fly with Alaska Airlines. We don’t have any upcoming flights, but we did play around with the app. It looks to be a really nice app and has a really clean design.
Anyone out there who uses Alaska Airlines frequently? Download and let us know if it lives up to your expectations!
