Mobiata, creators of the best-selling travel apps FlightTrack and FlightTrack Pro, announced today the launch of a new application for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users called FlightBoard. Designed after the Arrivals and Departures Board at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, this new travel app turns a user’s screen into an arrival and departures board for any airport in the world. By simply entering the name of the airport they wish to view, users are given a full view of their incoming and outgoing flights, status of these flights, as well as gate numbers. The app is available beginning today on the iTunes App Store for $3.99.
