Flight Status & Track
Flight Status deals with questions such as:
- Is my flight on time?
- How long is the delay?
- Is it cancelled?
- What is my departure or arrival gate and terminal?
- What type of plane is used on this flight?
Flight Track consists of positional information and updates needed to create flight tracking applications and answers questions such as:
- What is the planned flight path for this flight?
- Where is it now?
- Where has it been up to now?
|Flight Status & Track|
Flight Status gives you access to current flight information, including scheduled, estimated and actual departure/arrival times, equipment type, delay calculations, terminal, gate and baggage carousel.
Flight Track gives you access to information on an active flight, including position (lat/long), previous positions, altitude, bearing, speed and route.
Flight Position provides recent positional information on flights in a defined area.
