Flighstats is an application that allows you to check the status of any flight in the world in real time.
Searches can be made by flight number, airport, or route. It allows you to check the arrivals and departures -planned and current-, the terminal the plane is arriving at or leaving from, the status and baggage claim.
The most relevant is usually the status of the flight to know if it has already landed or if it is en route. In the latter case, it is also very practical to know if the flight will arrive on time or if it is delayed. This information can be very useful, for example, if we have arranged to pick someone up.
In some cases, especially if the airspace of the United States, Canada and Europe is flown, the tracking goes even further, and offers the exact coordinates in longitude and latitude of the place where the aircraft is, the speed at which it flies. , the height, the distance that separates you from the place of origin and the distance to the destination.
All this in real time and, as if that were not enough, accompanied by a map that indicates the route that the plane has followed and the exact point where it is. The application also includes general information about any airport, the exact address – ideal for GPS -, the local time, a short report on the delay index, and a brief reference to the local temperature.
The interface is only available in English, but it is so intuitive that the language is never an obstacle. Flighstats is available for Iphone and Android, and it also allows you to send a text message with the flight number to Google. In turn, the search engine will return the flight status in a text message.
