Flight info now at Kingston Airport & City website
October 29, 2013 -
The Kingston Airport page on the City's website now offers real-time arrival and departure information on all expected flights.
"This new functionality offers obvious benefits to those flying in and out of Kingston Airport – and provides us with a platform on which to build for future improvements in air services," says David Snow, Airport Manager. "The most frequent phone call we get is to ask for real-time flight information. With this tool, passengers and others can easily find accurate flight status information on their computer or smart phone."
All current flights in and out of Kingston Airport are offered by Air Canada, so passengers were previously directed online to Air Canada's flight status page. Now, the City – in partnership with iFids (providing the platform) and FlightView (providing data) – has the capacity to add real-time flight information from a variety of current and potential airlines.
The information will also be displayed to passengers and greeters on a large screen located in the general waiting area of the terminal.
In addition, the City's online Airport page (www.CityofKIngston.ca/airport or www.kingstonairport.ca) has an updated look including large "Arrivals" and "Departures" buttons to make this frequently-referenced information easy-to-find. More than 65,000 trips started or ended at Kingston Airport in 2012.
Kingston Airport is in the final stages of concept development for the potential expansion of the runway and terminal – a project to be developed for Council consideration in accordance with the City's Corporate Strategic Plan.
