The British Airways app for Windows Phone has received a much needed and impressive update today. The new app is available now in the Windows Phone Store and is free to download. The update, version 2.4 for those keeping score, brings enhancements such as live tiles and check-in for your flight via the app.
The new user experience of the British Airways app is the most obvious and notable change. It looks and feels much fresher than the previous release which was little more than a web app in a wrapper. This new version looks and functions like a modern mobile app, bringing much better navigation and feel to the app.
These changes though aren’t just skin deep. The new app interacts with Windows Phone at a much deeper level, brining things like Live Tile and Lockscreen support so you can see flight information at a glance. You can access your mobile boarding pass for your
next fight and get information about your next flight. If you are departing from London Heathrow’s Terminal 5, the home terminal of British Airways, you can also get live departure time and gate numbers.
Other updates in the app include:
- Track the live arrival or departure times for any British Airways flight.
- View terminal maps for airports across the world.
- Executive Club information for airports around the world
These updates to the British Airways app certainly brings it on par with the app that is available for iOS and Android and makes it one of the better airline apps for Windows Phone in general.
The app is free and available now in the Windows Phone Store
