Flightstats.com Launches New Consumer Website that Helps Travelers Avoid "Flying Blind"

Share Article

New travel website provides innovative free traveler tools that help consumers travel smarter through better flight service intelligence. The site also offers powerful downloadable applications to enhance any website or travel portal.

Our previous site was designed to represent our extensive business solutions. To our surprise the site really caught on with consumers and we are now committed to serving both the consumer and business travel market by providing innovative solutions that enable people to travel smarter.

http://www.flightstats.com has been totally redesigned to provide consumer-friendly access to the world's most complete and reliable flight performance information. Flightstats.com presents easy-to-use tools that help business and leisure travelers travel smarter with better information at each phase of travel - before, during and after.

Flightstats.com helps travelers buy smarter with performance ratings unlike any others. "Everyone complains when their flights are late or they miss a connection," says Meara McLaughlin, VP Business Development for FlightStats. "If you could see clearly, before you buy that the flight you wanted to buy was a one star (habitually late) and another on the same carrier an hour earlier was a five star for $10 more, which would you pick? Why buy 'blind'?" Flightstats.com helps you find the best flight for your money. A low price paid for poorly performing flight that could ruin your vacation or business trip is no bargain.

Flightstats.com also offers the first global flight alert system for any flight, regardless of where travelers book, which carriers they use or where they are headed. A simple entry form sets a monitor on any flight that will send an alert to a desktop, PDA, or even cell phone. This is the only one-stop notification service for busy travelers who need the right information to stay productive on the road.

Other useful day-of-travel features are the TSA security wait time estimates for your airport, terminal, gate and time of day, global flight status lookup by flight route or airport, weather conditions and forecasts, and much more. The site also introduces a variety of online forums to give travelers a place to share experience and intelligence empowering people to travel smarter.

Also new are the first two application Widgets for flight status and flight rating lookup. A Widget is a mini-application that provides you with fast access to FlightStats information and services. Widgets are available free to add to your Google or Microsoft Live.com personalized home page. Widgets can also easily be included on any website by downloading simple HTML code. These too are free for personal or commercial use.

"We're thrilled to release this new site." Continues McLaughlin. "Our previous site was designed to represent our extensive business solutions. To our surprise the site really caught on with consumers and we are now committed to serving both the consumer and business travel market by providing innovative solutions that enable people to travel smarter."
