Mobile flight tracker launches

FlyteComm and mFoundry are partnering to create FlyteSource Mobile, a new downloadable mobile application that lets travelers track commercial airline flights in real time from their data-capable cell phones. FlyteSource Mobile enables travelers to check on flight status in real time and search for alternate flights on other airlines. The application also lets users check the weather at an airport and set up favorite airports for quick searches; it also includes toll-free numbers for airlines, hotels and car rental agencies, which can be automatically dialed from the application.

Maurice Bailey, CEO of FlyteComm commentede: “We chose mFoundry’s mobile platform because it allows us to take vast amounts of data and package it in a responsive and easy-to-use mobile application. FlyteSource Mobile offers the most comprehensive and reliable real-time flight intelligence available to consumers.”

“We are very pleased to have FlyteComm as a strategic partner,” said Drew Sievers, CEO and co-founder of mFoundry. “FlyteComm led the creation of a new market in flight intelligence and it is leading the industry again by offering their data via mobile devices. FlyteSource is the first of many applications to come from our partnership.”

The application is currently available to Sprint subscribers and on additional carriers over the next few weeks. More details on FlyteSource Mobile are available at
