Cork Airport has become the first in the world to launch a new flight tracking feature on its app that allows passenger to click on a flight number and track live updates of exactly where the plan is in real time.
The flight tracking feature shows the aircraft’s route, speed, type of aircraft, altitude, distance traveled and total distance to destination, as well as a live map of flights in and out of the airport that can be filtered by arrivals and departures.
Kevin Cullinane, head of communications, Cork Airport said, “We are delighted to launch the new flight scanning feature on our app. To be the first airport in the world to introduce this innovative feature is a fantastic achievement and is a further example of Cork Airport’s commitment to providing a world-class customer experience for every passenger using the airport. Last year we became the first airport in Ireland to make Google Indoor maps available for all public areas of Cork Airport and in 2015 we will continue to innovate and introduce new initiatives to maintain the world-class customer experience for which we are known.”
The free Cork Airport app, which was launched last year, is the essential guide to the full range of services available at the airport. In addition to the new flight tracking feature, the app features live bus and coach departure times, live arrivals and departures information, car park booking, integrated maps and details of all of the retail and catering outlets within the terminal. The app also includes links to airport shopping services with all the latest offers from The Loop. It provides current weather details at Cork Airport, as well as live weather reports for all destinations.
The updated Cork Airport App is available to download free in the iTunes and Google Play stores.
