FlightAware is thrilled to announce a number of significant improvements to flight tracking for both general aviation and airline users. We're always innovating and updating FlightAware.com for you (see the list of updates here), but we have a couple big changes we want to announce:
Coverage UpdatesAs part of our recent launch of our FlightAware Global product for aircraft operators, we have been continually adding new data sources for real-time positions that are also available to users who use the free FlightAware.com web site. In the last month, we've added significant additional live flight positions for many airline flights across Europe, Middle East, Japan, Brazil, and New Zealand. These new foreign data sources now make it possible for travelers to seamlessly track live airline flights.
New Flight PageWe've also released our biggest changes to the flight tracking page since our launch over seven years ago. We've redesigned the page to be more natural and intuitive. It’s now easier than ever to retrieve key information at a glance.
Most notably, destination/arrival airport and departure/arrival times are featured prominently. The main departure/arrival is color-coded (green for on time, red for late) to quickly identify the status of the flight. Here is a summary of the most significant changes:
Site PerformanceNew FlightAware technology and infrastructure launched today will provide significantly improved performance and a page load about 25% faster than before. FlightAware harnesses cutting edge technology to always provide great user experiences and we are thrilled with this improvement.
