More Than One Million Mobile Users Trust FlightView

Real-Time, Accurate Flight Information and Powerful Functionality Make FlightView the Preferred Travel App for Day-of-Travel Information


BOSTON, MA (October 4, 2011) - FlightView, the preferred flight-tracking app by mobile users for accuracy and ease-of-use, just achieved a major milestone: more than one million mobile users are now using FlightView's travel app to simplify their travel experience.

With mobile applications for Android, iPhone, Blackberry and Palm and the most accurate and actionable day-of-travel information available, FlightView's reach extends far beyond the typical traveler to include an extensive base of mobile users, including the individuals picking travelers up and dropping them off at the airport, pilots, airline employees, ground transportation providers and corporate travel managers.

"Whether flying for business or leisure, picking up an acquaintance at the airport or tracking a loved one's flight, our users trust FlightView to give them the travel information they need, when they need it," said Mike Benjamin, CEO of FlightView. "The fact that more than a million mobile users are tapping FlightView for real-time flight information - across all major mobile platforms - validates both the market need for easy access to accurate flight information, and the reliability and consistency of the information we provide."

Backed by more than 30 years of flight-tracking experience, FlightView's mobile apps offer users an affordable way to manage trips, track flights and plan for delays. FlightView Elite - available on the Android and iPhone - offers advanced functionality including flight boards, driving directions to the airport and 7-day weather forecasts for arriving and departing airport cities.

Just last week, the company launched FlightView 2.0 for Android, becoming one of the first Android travel apps to combat battery drain by implementing push notifications. FlightView 2.0 also comes equipped with advanced flight tracking and search functionalities. FlightView plans to release an upgraded iPhone app in the coming months.

FlightView's apps consistently receive five-star ratings for accuracy, powerful functionality and ease-of-use, from users of all platforms, professions and demographics. Here are some of the things they're saying:

  • "As a pilot for a major U.S. Airline, I especially appreciate the route with weather overlay. It provides great situational awareness with the planned route filed." - Palm user
  • "Best flight app out there. Has everything you would ever need to know. Very user-friendly!" - BlackBerry user
  • "Love this app. It tracked my 84-year-old Dad's flight and it was very accurate." - iPhone user
  • "I love the FlightView for Android app. My husband is a pilot so it helps me keep up with him. He just gives me the flight numbers and I plug them in." - Android user

"We've been in the mobile travel app business since day one, and are constantly innovating to offer our customers the best experience possible," said Benjamin. "All of our functionality enhancements come as a direct result of our customer feedback."
