Remember the old days? Way back when people had to call you before boarding a flight to tell you when you need to pick them up from the airport or when they were landing. Technology has come a long way since then. Now, many airports have waiting areas with flight number and status displays. These displays inform those picking someone up if the flight is on time or delayed.
The airport has a number of obstacles when picking someone up or dropping them off. Towing, ticketing, parking lot fees, slow buses, impatient drivers and pedestrians, and taxis – just to name a few. Wouldn’t things be easier if a flight pick up can be arranged prior to your commute? If you didn’t have to check a flight status in the waiting lot – if you can minimize the stress of airport obstacles. Well, now checking a flight status is easier than ever before, and free!
