FlightView Upgrades Flight-Tracking App with Customizable Airport Content
Version 2.2 Now Available on the iPhone
FlightView 2.2 is the first step in enabling users to customize the flight and airport information they receive and more holistically manage travel plans. Travelers can now create user profiles on FlightView.com or in their iPhone app, and specify their home airport and preferred airline. These preferences result in a new custom view of critical day-of-travel information for their home airport and next trip, including:
- Current delay status and weather conditions for their airport
- Quick links to arrival and departure flight boards for their airport (FlightView Elite only)
- Details for the user's next trip, and weather conditions for his/her destination(s).
"We're constantly looking for new ways to put control back in the traveler's hands," said Mike Benjamin, CEO of FlightView. "The new user profiles are a starting point for more comprehensive trip management features that will be rolled out later this year."
