Flight Explorer and Rally Caparas Team Up To Provide Consumers Access to State-of-the-Art Online Travel Tools
-- Real-time flight tracking and airport information tools among highlights --
McLean, VA – November 1, 2006 – Just in time for the busy holiday travel season, Flight Explorer (FE), the world’s leading provider of real-time global flight tracking information, and Rally Caparas, on-air aviation travel expert and reporter, have announced a partnership. Caparas’ alliance with Flight
Explorer will provide travelers the best real-time air travel information available through a revamped consumer-focused website, www.flightexplorer.com launching on November 15th, 2006.
Caparas, a former FAA Air Traffic Controller and air travel expert, is the foremost authority in the U.S., and perhaps the world, providing real-time air traffic reports via the Internet, print and broadcast media. He appears weekdays on CNN Headline News, using Flight Explorer as his primary broadcast tool. “Flight Explorer has proven to be a true leader in the field and I’m excited to work with them to expand their presence in the global aviation market,” said Caparas.
Caparas believes that in his profession it is essential that he have access to the most up-to-date, precise information on domestic and international delays and travel issues, which is why he relies on Flight Explorer and its suite of tools on-air. “It’s easy and fun to use and now everyday travelers will have access to this innovative technology,” added Caparas. “Flight Explorer will make traveling easier for consumers especially during this upcoming busy holiday season.”
Formerly with Travelocity Business, Caparas is teaming up with Flight Explorer not only because of the quality of its product, but also for the growth potential the company has to offer in the future.
Providing real-time flight and airport status information, FE overhauled the design and navigation of the site, making it simple not only to track flights, but also to provide airport information, pre-travel tools, security wait times, travel tips from Rally and more. With a November 15th launch date, it will be right on schedule for the peak holiday travel season, including Thanksgiving, the busiest and often most frustrating travel day of the year.
“The new flightexplorer.com will provide travelers the valuable tools they need to enhance their travel experience – whether it’s to make better use of their time spent waiting in the departure terminal or let them know when they may have to adjust their meeting or travel schedule due to flight delays,” said Jim Kelly, Flight Explorer CEO. “We’re excited about leveraging Rally’s extensive industry knowledge and ability to reach out to travelers with a consumer-friendly approach.”
Flight Explorer was first introduced in 1997 and immediately gained recognition as the premiere real-time flight tracking and management system in the aviation industry. Flight arrival and departure information is obtained by using official FAA tracking data, ensuring its reliability.
