Customers can travel at ease on Alaska Airlines when they use the carrier´s new native Windows Phone application, available for free in the Windows Phone Store. The app can be used on all smartphones with Windows Phone 8 and later versions.
“We´re committed to making Alaska Airlines the easiest airline to fly and our newest app gives our customers mobile tools that make travel easy and fun,” said Curtis Kopf, Alaska Airlines´ vice president of customer innovation. “Microsoft is a great Seattle neighbor and it´s been great to collaborate with them in creating this app for our customers.”
As with Alaska´s native apps for iPhone and Android devices, the Windows Phone app enables users to purchase a ticket, track a reservation and flight, select a seat, pay for checked bags, view Mileage Plan balance, and synchronize future flights. By late May, version 1.1 of the Windows Phone app will boast Live Tile functionality, offering users easy access to essential day-of travel information like flight status and gate information. With this upgrade, users will also be able to pin a boarding pass directly to their Start screen and receive pop-up toast notifications.
Alaska Airlines, a subsidiary of Alaska Air Group (NYSE: ALK), together with its partner regional airlines, serves nearly 100 cities through an expansive network in Alaska, the Lower 48, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico.
