As the world's most complete web-based monitoring system, Flight Tracker can send real-time flight tracking, and airport delay information via e-mail or text message prior to and while traveling. This tool is provided at no charge to all clients of Directravel. Travelers can set up a profile that will allow them to receive alerts notifying them of any possible delays, cancellations and gate changes.

"Here at Directravel we are constantly searching for new productive ways to make travel less stressful and hectic. We are very excited to introduce our new travel tool, Flight Tracker," says Pat Fragale, president of Directravel. "We encourage all our clients to use this real-time alert system so their business and leisure trips will become more enjoyable and an all around better flying experience."

Flight Tracker will send a message to the e-mail or SMS address that the client will have given upon registration allowing the traveler to be alerted to the status of all flights four hours before departure, along with any cancellations or diversions. This gives the client plenty of time to make new arrangements if there was to be a delay.

The traveler will also be notified of any delays greater than thirty minutes, including connection information and changes of connecting flights of more than fifteen minutes, up to the time of departure.
