When it comes to arrival times, the likelihood of being late, airspeeds and other random flight data, flight tracking fiends can turn to the following apps to keep a close eye on specific flights and make booking decisions based on flight-tracking data from the past.


The Flight Tracker

As the name implies, The Flight Tracker not only displays departure and arrival times, but also informs travelers of departure terminals, seat maps for specific flights and any changes or cancellations. The offline app also works when you’re flying in case your seatback flight tracker is defunct.



For detailed, real-time information about your flight, download FlightAware or visit the website, which can clue you in to where your flight is coming from, the weather conditions in the original location that may affect air travel and other flight details. You can even sign up to receive mobile notifications regarding changes to your flight, including airport gate changes.



If you’re not interested in the bells and whistles that come with the above apps, FlightBoard is about as simple as you can get. The app shows arrivals and departures of more than 1,400 airlines in 16,000 airports in a classic design based on the flight board in Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris.
