    Traveler application developers gain access to global, real-time flight alerts to keep travelers informed.


    FlightStats, Inc. the industry-leading publisher of global flight tracking and airport information services, is pleased to announce a new Flight Alerts API in beta. The FlightStats® Flex Alert API enables organizations that serve travelers to provide proactive, event-based alerts to their customers to keep them informed of status or changes to their flights.

    Using the new Alerts API, developers can create “Flight Alert Rules” specifying the flight segment (e.g. “American Airlines 100 from JFK to LHR on December 12th), the events to monitor (e.g. gate changes, delays, departures, arrivals, cancelations, etc.), and deliver those results, including a description of the event that occurred along with the current flight status, to the specified URL. The alert messages can then be parsed, branded and packaged with other information and pushed directly to consumers, keeping them informed throughout their journey.
