How to set up diversion alerts.

Hey all, just a quick question. Is there a way to set up an alert that triggers when a flight has diverted to an specific airport?

It depends on how busy the airport is that you want to get the diversion alerts to, but, if able, you should be able to set these alerts up by going to: flightaware.com/account/manage/alerts

Click on Set up New Alert
Check Advanced Options box
Type in Airport Code you want alerts for in the destination box
Select when you would like to be alerted
Select where you want the alert sent
Click the drop down box and select Advanced Options
Selected Diverted
Select Set Up Alert

As I just set one up to test it, you will also want to remove the expected to arrive check as it will send the alert even though a flight has not diverted.
