South Norwalk, CT (May 12, 2010) – Virgin Atlantic Airways has today released an essential new app, which will be a must-have travel companion for all globetrotters worldwide. The app, developed in collaboration with Waracle and TAG Games called ‘Virgin Atlantic Flight Tracker,’ will help track in real-time, the location of each of the airline’s aircraft around the globe and retrieve the latest arrival and departure information as well as Flying Club details.
The app allows users to track in real-time, the location of each Virgin Atlantic aircraft around the globe and retrieve arrival and departure information. Passengers can also view the approximate flight path of each aircraft in addition to being able to set an alert, which will appear on their iPhone when their chosen aircraft lands at its destination. Flight schedules listed in a live feed and Flying Club account information, including recent transactions, are also available along with two fun games, ‘Where’s Richard’ and ‘Balloon Trip,’ which can be played while enroute to a destination.
The app has also been featured by Apple as a top app in their Travel category for free apps which is a testament to its quality.
Paul Dickinson, Director of Sales and Marketing commented:
“This Virgin Atlantic iPhone app allows our passengers to have the information that they regularly look for on our website at their fingertips wherever they are. The real time flight status, timetables as well as the alerts for flights landing is something we know will be really beneficial for both our passengers and their relatives alike. I am sure that the Flight Tracker app, and the Jet Lag app which we released at the same time, will prove extremely popular with millions of travelers worldwide.”
