If you’ve ever traveled on an airplane or picked up anyone from the airport, you the frustration of navigating airport terminals. Finding the right gate, terminal, and baggage claim carousel all involve investigations and calculations that can stump even the most seasoned traveler.

Keep Track of Your Trips

Add your flights, from over 1400 airlines around the world, or from your saved favorite airlines. You can add flights by either entering the flight number or searching by route. You can schedule your trips up to a year in advance.
Flight Update also has an InstaFlight feature which can give you instant information on available flights. If you get bumped, miss your flight or need immediate flight information, Flight Update can provide it to you.
Features of Flight Update
Flight Update gives you information about flights worldwide and helps you plan your trip. With Flight Update, you can learn:
- Which terminal and gate your flight is departing and arriving from
- Which baggage carousel your luggage will be on
- Actual arrival and departure times for your flight
- Layover times between flights
- Weather information at airports
- Phone numbers and websites for airlines
You can link your calendar to the app so that flight information is mirrored between Flight Update and your calendar. Flight Update can also help you choose your seat by showing you the seating layout of the airplane for your flight.
The app is also handy when you’re picking up people from the airport. You can track the flight and learn if it’s due to arrive on time, late or early. You can also see at which terminal a flight will be arriving and the baggage carousel where your friend’s luggage will be arriving (hopefully!).
Flight Update came in very handy for my husband when he was traveling in a far away land. He had to change planes in an airport where English was non-existent. He was pressed for time and could not figure out which gate his connecting flight was leaving from. A bit stressed, he called me back in the US so I could use Flight Update to find out the gate number. Within seconds I was able to tell him which gate he should head to. He made the flight on time (and now has an iPhone).
You can enable Push Notifications to alert you when your flight has been delayed. This feature alone may be worth the price of the app.
Flight Update Pro
If you’re a frequent traveler and use TripIt to keep track of your travel plans, you may want to upgrade to the Pro version of Flight Update. With the Pro version, you can link the app to TripIt so your flight information is automatically shared between your TripIt account and your Flight Update app.
An Internet connection is required for this app to access flight information.
If you’re a frequent traveler, Flight Update can save you both time and aggravation by providing you with real-time flight data and other information you need for your travels.
