The Windows Phone ecosystem in India is flying high – literally and figuratively. After Jet Airways and SpiceJet, another Indian airline has launched their Windows Phone app.
The popular low-cost carrier, IndiGo, is India’s largest airline in terms of market share, and one of the fastest growing low-cost carriers in the world. The airline operates to about 35 destinations in India and abroad with over 400 daily flights.
The IndiGo app for Windows Phone 8 devices has a great design reflecting the airline’s livery. The user experience is intuitive and seamless. Apart from the ability to search and book flights, the app allows you to check the latest flight schedule or real-time flight status.
Interestingly, the app allows you to book flights with a ‘Pay Now’ or ‘Pay Later’ option. When you opt for the latter, your PNR is created and the booking is on hold for the next 2 hours. You can make payment for the same online or at the airline’s call center during this period, else the booking will expire.
One of the missing features that is coming soon, as the app informs, is the ability to check-in, select your seat, or access all your itinerary details.
A handy addition is the in-flight menu. While you can’t book a meal from the app, it’s useful when you need to order something to eat while on board, without looking for their in-flight magazine for the menu.
Download the app for free from the Windows Phone Store. It’s still in the works, but looks good and works pretty well. Give it a go, and let us know how you like it.
