The localised version will make it that much easier to get timely, complete and accurate information on flight status and airport conditions in the UK and across the globe
Portland, OR (PRWEB) December 16, 2008
FlightStats today announced the public launch of a localised web site designed to provide flight status and airport information to UK-based travelers. Visitors to the site are greeted with a map showing current airport delay conditions for the UK and Ireland and a flight status search tool to find current flight information by flight, by route or by airport. To coincide with the launch of flightstats.co.uk, the company also announced the availability of map-based flight tracking for most European flights. The new flight tracker lets visitors see the current location of individual flights in European airspace on a Google(tm) Map complete with route tracing and a weather radar overlay. Visitors can also display an airport flight tracker that shows the current location of arriving and departing flights around European airports.
Flightstats.com has been heavily used by UK residents and travelers. "The localised version will make it that much easier to get timely, complete and accurate information on flight status and airport conditions in the UK and across the globe," said Jeff Kennedy, CEO of Conducive Technology Corp., FlightStats' parent. "And through an agreement with AirNav Systems, UK and other European users will be able to see the location of flights operating in European airspace - a feature that has been often requested by site visitors," he added.
In addition to its flight status and tracking services, the new site provides a wealth of information on airports including arrival/departure data, airport weather and traffic, current airport delay conditions, and the observations of travelers through FlightStats' airport chatter feature.
