The Lufthansa apps - a suitable app for every device


Lufthansa Apps


Be it iPhone or Blackberry, Nokia, Android or another Smartphone. Lufthansa is offering you specifically designed apps for these devices. You will have mobile access anywhere, anytime to the most important services concerning flying with Lufthansa.


Stylish, practical and made for Windows phones: the Lufthansa app

With the Lufthansa app, Windows users are well-equipped to plan and organise their trips, even on the go. They have access to the Lufthansa flight schedule, can book flights to destinations worldwide, check in and check their flight status at any time. In addition, they can find information quickly using the new Search function.
Passengers always have their personal travel data and documents close at hand with the Travel Document Storage and can access this mobile-stored information during their mobile check-in process.
Miles & More members can access their current mileage status with the app and can see their most recent account activities and status information. In addition, they can also access their current miles status on the electronic "Wallet".
Travellers from around the world can now enjoy the app in 12 available languages.


Get maximum use from characteristic functions such as "Live Tile"

Users also benefit from the practical "Live Tile" feature, with which they can "attach" information to their flight status or their mobile boarding pass on the home page of their Windows Phones. The flight status information is automatically updated and is available at a glance without requiring the user to open the app. For example, the mobile boarding pass can be directly called up from the Windows phone's homepage, without requiring the user to open the app.
A remarkable feature: the app also offers the user the opportunity to customise the lock screen for their Windows phone with beautiful pictures from the world of Lufthansa. If the guest has checked in for their flight via mobile and saved their boarding pass in the app, the background motif of the lock screen will change to a picture of the appropriate destination and information about the next flight will be displayed as well.

Mobile in style — a new design for Lufthansa mobile services

Lufthansa passengers should be able to enjoy the best possible services at any time and in any location. That is why we are now making the Lufthansa smartphone apps and the mobile portal available to them in a fresh, new design and with enhanced functions.

Here they will now find especially attractive flight offers even more quickly and have direct access to the most frequently used services, such as check-in and flight status, to their mobile boarding pass or to personal entry data. The new page structure and the clear design provide a link to the portal’s ‘big sister’ website on the stationary Internet. Faster load times and more images create an enjoyable and contemporary user experience.

In addition, in future only one login will be required overall for entering and accessing personal data, when booking flights, for example or when requesting a Miles & More account balance. With the user’s agreement, the login data will be saved in encrypted form on the device. So on their next visit to the website, the user will have direct access to personal services — without the trouble of keying in passwords again.

Always up-to-date en route — with push notifications

The departure gate has changed? Passengers who have subscribed in the Lufthansa app to status requests for a flight, after check-in for example, will automatically see a message displayed in the app when something changes in respect of their flight. Even users who are not travelling can subscribe to flight messages and therefore be informed about status changes by the app — an information service that is highly recommended, especially for anyone collecting family, friends or colleagues from the airport.

The user can also activate and deactivate push messages for current offers in the app settings.

Practical and convenient: the extended data storage function

When we travel we want things to be simple above all else. No problem: the new Lufthansa travel document file saves time and helps with organisation. Consequently, passengers will in future have a sort of personal storage system in the app in which they can save travel documents and residence permits such as a Green Card. This stored information is accessed during the mobile check-in process so that users save themselves the trouble of having to type in lots of data. Moreover, the app lets the user know when travel documents are due to expire — so that they can sort out a replacement or renewal in good time.

Whether you are flying yourself or only want to collect passengers from the airport, the Lufthansa app provides helpful functions and relevant information at every stage of the journey.
