Lufthansa Lands on Windows Phone 8

German airline Lufthansa has launched an app for Windows Phone 8.

The app enables users to book a flight, check in, and follow the flights status. Using WP8S live tile functionality, users can pin a widget with details of their flight – update in real time – to their homescreen.

Mobile boarding passes are also supported – unsurprising, given that Lufthansa was an early pioneer in the space, testing out boarding cards delivered by SMS as early as 2008.

For extra functionality, the app serves up the relevant mobile webpage, carrying the users log-in details across sites.
