Delta Air Lines has updated its Fly Delta app for Android and iPhone devices, enabling users to purchase SkyMiles Award tickets from their smartphones.
The update has also improved navigation, so customers can comparison-shop between cabins or fare prices all on the same screen using swipe and toggle features to access additional information.
Further enhancements have more closely aligned the app with delta.com, including the addition of Miles + Cash purchase capability and a News Feed section featuring alerts and advisories. Users also have the ability to watch a flight and track the arrival time through the new Watch Flight function.
