FlightTrack, a very popular travel application for the iPhone, is now available for the BlackBerry via BlackBerry App World. FlightTrack, as its name implies, allows you to track every aspect of domestic and international flights including delays, cancellations, and gate information.
We’ve talked about travel applications before. WorldMate is one of our all time favorite BlackBerry applications, however, BlackBerry travel apps, WorldMate included, are often geared towards road warriors. FlightTrack is geared towards anyone with a BlackBerry that intends to get on an airplane at some point. Even if you only fly once per year or two to go on vacation, knowing the status of your flight in near real-time is invaluable.
Additional FlightTrack Features:
- View live flight tracking maps
- Track domestic and international flights.
- Covers more than 5,000 airports worldwide.
- Check gate numbers, delays and cancellations.

FlightTrack for iPhone has been downloaded over 1 million times. I’d be willing to bet that it does pretty good on the BlackBerry as well.
