Choosing the most convenient flight for your trip can mean short layovers, unfamiliar airports and last-minute changes. Knowing exactly when and where your plane will be taking off and landing makes business travel easier.
Combat business travel challenges with a real-time flight tracking app. These options provide up-to-date flight information to your phone or, in some cases, your smartwatch. Each of these flight tracker apps have free versions and are available for both iOS and Android devices.
Enter your flight number for real-time updates to your flight’s itinerary. You can also search for your flight using a specific airport or city. FlightAware includes tracking for commercial flights worldwide, as well as updates on charter and private planes in the US and Canada. FlightAware includes delay, gate, departure and arrival information for your tracked flight. You can add push notifications for your flight to make sure you’re alerted to the latest information.
Track the status of your flight, arrival and departure information, current weather conditions and delays. FlightRadar24 maps your plane’s route in real time with speed and altitude data, as well as the estimated time of arrival.
With FlightStats, you can check on your flight’s real-time status and gate number at a glance on your Apple Watch. This flight tracker app includes departure and arrival information, flight plans and the actual path your flight takes. You can search for (and save) your specific flights using flight number, route or airport.
