For 25 years, Business Traveler magazine has presented The Best in Business Travel Awards, which honors over 46 different travel service companies in over 64 different categories for their services, products, and technologies.
FlightStats' free mobile applications provide quick access to global flight status, and airport information. FlightStats offers a mobile website, Android App, iPad App and iPhone App.
“We are extremely pleased and proud to be awarded the 2013 Best Mobile Travel App, two years in a row by the readers of Business Traveler,” said Tod Hutchinson, CEO of FlightStats.
FlightStats aggregates data from over 300 trusted sources, which include Airlines, Airports, civil aviation authorities and GDS systems to produce real-time flight status information. Over the years, FlightStats has grown to be the trusted data provider, and now has customers in more than 120 countries, including Airlines, Airports, mobile developers, Internet search engines and more.
Looking ahead, FlightStats will be introducing a new mobile application in 2014. It is designed specifically for Travel Management Companies or Corporate Travel Departments who are looking for a GDS-agnostic, independent, and effective branded mobile solution for their customers/travelers. “This mobile application will provide travelers with a very unique trip experience, which engages the TMC throughout the day-of-travel,” explains Hutchinson. “Where many existing mobile solutions are designed ‘traveler-centric,’ our new solution will enhance the role and relevance of the TMC, while providing traveler adoption, visibility and program compliance.” The application will ultimately integrate seamlessly with Agent Advantage, an existing trip disruption and alerting solution already offered by FlightStats. Beta of the mobile application is scheduled for January.
