Travel booking website Traveloka introduces its latest feature, Flight Status, which enables users to track flight status in real-time. This feature aims to make it easier for users to track flights in various conditions and can be used both by people who want to take a flight or by family and close relatives who want to pick up their colleagues at the airport.

When arranging a trip by plane in this era of frequent delays, passengers need some kind of information on what cannot be predicted. The same goes for colleagues, friends or family who want to be picked up at the airport, who often find themselves waiting for hours because they didn’t know the flight had been delayed.

“We want to provide flight status information in a way that’s convenient and easy to access, both to help passengers and those meeting them. By having this new feature, users can easily have the information only by their fingertips and users can also share their flight status information with their closest family and relatives when needed,” says Tee Chayakul, Country Manager at Traveloka Thailand.

To access Flight Status feature, open the Traveloka app (3.6.0 version), select Flight Status at the homepage and fill in flight details by choosing Route or by Flight Code. Then click “See Status” and the real-time of your flight status will appear on the screen. Users can also check their flight status in their e-ticket on My Booking section.

“The availability of the Flight Status feature for the first time by Traveloka, is expected to answer users’ anxiety, both passengers and relatives, making for better planning,” Tee adds.
