I have been hooked on a global flight tracking app called Flightradar24. I recently downloaded the app and I can’t stop playing with it.
Flightradar24 is a global flight tracking service that provides you with real-time information about thousands of aircraft around the world.
It is currently available online and as an app for your iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) or Android device.
It tracks over 180,000 flights per day, there are over 2 million users per day, and the amount of useful flight information is staggering.
Detailed flight information that lists the route, type of plane, altitude, flight time, and more.
It shows departure and arrival times, scheduled and actual, weather at the airport, and ground speed.
Just click on an airport and it shows the arrival and departure boards.
You don’t have to sprint off the plane and find the nearest departure board. It’s now right in my hand.
Download the app to your phone and get familiar with it so you’re ready to use it on your next (hopefully soon) trip.
