Lufthansa is offering an app developed especially for the new Apple Watch. The app provide users with all their essential flight information, which they can access from 24 hours before their flight during the various stages of their journey with Lufthansa.
The new app on the Apple Watch connects to the Lufthansa app on iPhones and iPads via Bluetooth and can be downloaded for free from the App Store.
The new Apple Watch reminds users of their flight the day before the departure and provides continuous updates about the status of the flight and displays the boarding time, terminal, gate and seat number.
The graphics have been designed especially for the display on the Apple Watch. These functions will initially only be available to Miles & More participants who are logged in to the Lufthansa app for iPhones or iPads. For passengers who do not have a Miles & More card, these functions will be available at a later date.
All passengers will also be able to display boarding cards saved in Passbook on their Apple Watch and use it for boarding. In addition, the watch will tell passengers what the current weather is at their destination.
Apple Watch is only for iPhone users. This means, Apple Watch requires iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus running iOS 8.2. or later.
Apple Watch features technologies including the Digital Crown, an innovative way to scroll, zoom and navigate fluidly without obstructing the display.
