Beta Flight Alerts Released


FlightAware has released flight alerts into public beta. Now, you can receive automated tracking notifications from FlightAware via e-mail or instant message (IM).

To get started, simply click “alert me” on any flight page (at the top of the tracking box) or visit to manage your alerts.

Currently, the only instant messenger supported is Jabber IM although but we’ll release AIM/AOL IM later in November. Additionally, expect to see other improvements such as the ability to request a notification [x] minutes prior to arrival.

Thanks for using FlightAware, enjoy the new feature, and please send us feedback!
