BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--UK travellers can now benefit from the same accurate and actionable flight-tracking information as travellers in North America. FlightView, the developer of the most trusted and reliable flight tracking apps for iOS and Android, has launched its top-rated iPhone travel app in the United Kingdom.
FlightView’s mobile app – which has been downloaded by more than 3.3 million people in the US and Canada -- makes it easy for travellers and the people picking them up to instantly track flights, manage trips and keep friends and family informed. The new app is custom-designed for the UK and will be available in both Free and Premium versions.
“The more informed a traveller is, the better the experience,” said Mike Benjamin, CEO of FlightView. “We strive to provide our mobile users with unparalleled access to travel and flight information – in a simple, easy-to-consume format – so their trips are smoother and more enjoyable.”
FlightView keep users one step ahead throughout the travel process, with mobile information and functionality that enables them to:
- Track upcoming and in-air flights, receiving status alerts via push notifications
- Monitor delays and cancellations
- Check gate assignments and baggage claim information
- See the location of their outbound plane by checking the status of the aircraft’s previous flight
- Maintain a list of upcoming trips for quick reference and tracking
- Find alternative flights by viewing flight schedules between cities
- Check weather conditions and forecasts for destinations
In addition, iOS users can forward their travel itineraries to Trips@FlightView.com and FlightView will automatically load the information into their app. The app also supports iPhone calendar integration and social sharing on Facebook and Twitter. FlightView Elite (2.49 £) users gain access to Flight Boards – which show the arrival and departure displays for major UK airports, and enjoy an advertisement-free mobile experience.
"We’re thrilled to be expanding into the UK and making our mobile apps available to more travellers," said Benjamin. "Our apps have a reputation for delivering the most accurate and reliable information in the industry and, now, UK users can take advantage.”
Backed by 30 years of flight-tracking and travel experience, FlightView also offers innovative travel apps for Android devices in the U.S. and Canada, and has plans to eventually offer them in the UK.
