FlightAware Blog Home    Navigating Flight Disruptions: How FlightAware's Free App Can Help Save Your Travel Plans

The travel landscape has seen a surge in airline flight delays and cancellations, creating an inconvenience for many passengers. Factors such as widespread winter storms, sub-zero temperatures, and the FAA grounding of the US Boeing 737-9 MAX jet fleet have collectively contributed to tens of thousands of disrupted flights over the past two weeks. Amidst this turbulence, staying informed and prepared is crucial for travelers. In this blog post, we explore how FlightAware's free app can be your go-to tool for tracking flights, predicting movements, and navigating potential disruptions.

The FlightAware App: A powerful tool that allows users to track every airline flight, providing real-time information on the location, predicted movements, and estimated time of arrival (ETA) for aircraft. This can also help you be aware of a future delay that may not yet be reflected from the airline. Airlines themselves rely on FlightAware for up-to-the-minute data, making it an indispensable tool for both industry professionals and passengers.
One standout feature of the FlightAware app is 'Where is My Plane.' This feature empowers users to track the exact whereabouts of the specific aircraft scheduled for their flight. In a scenario where delays and cancellations are on the rise, having this critical information at your fingertips can make all the difference.
 Using FlightAware's 'Where is My Plane' feature is remarkably easy.
  1. Download and Install the FlightAware App: Begin by downloading the FlightAware app from your preferred app store. It is available for both Android and iOS devices.
  2. Search for Your Flight: Search by flight number or the airport code, to locate the specific aircraft assigned to your journey.
  3. Track the Aircraft: Once you've identified your flight, use the app to track the exact location of the aircraft in real-time. The 'Where is My Plane' feature provides insights into the make and model of the plane, as well as its current location, allowing you to stay ahead of any potential changes.
  4. Stay Informed About Aircraft Alterations: Keep in mind that airlines may change aircraft before departure for various reasons. The 'Where is My Plane' feature ensures that you can stay informed about any alterations in the aircraft assigned to your flight.
