    World Flights: a very useful app for your passengers!

    I am one of Wellington most frequent flyers.
    I travel around the World at least once month for business and am constantly prone to delayed or cancelled flights.

    To optimise my time, I have decided to create an iPhone application that gives live departures and arrivals information for any flights at any given airport around the World.

    Here are some of the features of the very helpful iPhone travel app, World Flights:

    - Provides accurate and up-to-date information about commercial flights to and from any airport, or based on any given route
    - Identifies the nearest airport to a specific location
    - Allows users to save their most frequented airports and routes as favorites for quick access
    - Displays flight tracking information on a map

    Many airports have already developed their own similar app (Auckland, Heathrow…) but with info only related to them. World Flights saves you from having an app per airport, it gives you info for any airport around the world!

    This new app already has a great success around the globe. If you feel it could be any value to my fellow travelers from Wellington do not hesitate to mention it in your website

    More information can be found on: http://itunes.apple.com/app/world-flights/id374168766?mt=8

    PS: There is also a draw to win an ipad everytime a milestone of 10,000 download is reached on the AppStore!! http://www.3dot5.net/blog/win-an-ipad/
