FlightAware started out as a web-based service that allowed people to check up on the status of any flight. Waiting to watch an electronic board in an airport update to inform you that there is a delay is no one’s idea of fun. With FlightAware you could check up on that incoming flight from home and get an accurate status report.
The service expanded to mobile platforms and you can get a FlightAware app for Android, iOS, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone. That means that wherever you happen to be you can take out your smartphone and check when that flight will be touching down. You can see the live map flight track of any commercial flight worldwide. You can even track private and charter flights in the U.S. and Canada. The notifications service will inform you of any important delays or developments for the flights you are tracking.
With over 1.5 million registered members there is no doubt the service is in demand and the mobile apps are completely free to download and use. The service has been widely praised in the media by everyone from NBC to CNN to the Wall Street Journal. It really is one of the best travel apps around and your best option for keeping track of those all-important flights.
