Flight Explorer Gives Zoom And Go Customers Ability
to Follow In-Flight Aircraft Using Flight Explorer Fast Track
-- Customers can check on incoming flights of friends and family --
Alexandria, Va.– September 13, 2005 – Zoom And Go, a multi-media travel booking site, featuring breaking news, tips and reviews from people traveling the globe just got even better thanks to Flight Explorer Fast Track, a service from Flight Explorer that enables visitors to the Zoom and Go web site to track commercial flights in the U.S. and Canada. Flight Explorer is the world's most trusted and accepted provider of Internet-based real-time global flight tracking information, reporting and display products.
Customers need only go to the Travel Café page at – www.ZoomAndGo.com -- to check on the progress of an arriving or departing commercial flight. Flight Explorer Fast Track data includes a graphic of the aircraft position on a map of the US or Canada, departure and arrival times, in-flight information (altitude, ground speed, time remaining in flight) and weather information for the origin and destination airport. Zoom And Go is the first Flight Explorer Fast Track customer that provides free access to the general public on their website. Other Flight Explorer Fast Track clients provide the information only to customers, not the general public.
Walt Kross, CEO of Flight Explorer, said, “Zoom And Go is a first class travel site that has worked hard to differentiate itself from the competition. I’m very pleased that it has included Flight Explorer Fast Track in its site and given customers another reason to return to Zoom And Go.”
“When we looked into the possible options for allowing our users to track flights from our site, we chose Flight Explorer Fast Track because it has the best graphical interface on the market and provides a feature set you can’t find elsewhere,” said Jonathan Haldane, president and CEO of Zoom And Go. “Our users have told us they love using it and that it is one of the more popular things we’ve recently added to the site. Flight Explorer Fast Track increased the services we offer to our community on www.ZoomAndGo.com and it has provided an added value to our users that has been very popular. It has also helped increase the stickiness of our site, the amount of time visitors spend there.”
