Jet Airways unveiled its Apple Watch app, becoming the first Indian airline to do so.
The application with watch OS 2 support, will allow passengers to access real time information about their flight status of any flight on Jet Airways’ network, receive a flight status notification, get alerts for upcoming trips as well as updates on special deals and offers from Jet Airways.
The flight status application allows passengers to check their flight status on the day of departure.
This is done by entering the flight number on the keypad of the watch to receive the latest status update.
Then passengers need to click ‘More on iPhone’ on the Apple Watch, and the app will open the flight status details page.

To access it, users will first need to download the app for iPhone, (existing users will need to upgrade to the latest version).
