Virgin Atlantic's new 'Flight Tracker' and 'Jetlag Fighter' iPhone apps


Virgin Atlantic released two essential iPhone and iPod touch apps, which are must-have travel companions for all globetrotters worldwide.



Flight Tracker app

The 'Virgin Atlantic Flight Tracker' app, allows users to track in real-time, the location of each of our aircraft around the globe and retrieve arrival and departure information.

Passengers can also:


  • View the approximate flight path of each aircraft, in addition to being able to set an alert, which will appear on their iphone when their chosen aircraft lands at its destination.
  • View Flight Schedules listed in a live feed.
  • Access Flying Club account information, including recent transactions.
  • Have fun with two fun games - 'Where's Richard' and 'Balloon Trip,' which can be played while enroute to a destination.

The Flight Tracker app is free and can be downloaded from iTunes.


Jetlag Fighter app

To help travellers fight the symptoms of jet lag, we've teamed up with Mental Workout, (the leading developer of mobile and web-based apps that inspire and enable people to live better lives), and Dr. Chris Idzikowski, (a world-renowned jet lag and sleep expert), to bring iPhone and iPod touch users this one-of-a-kind app.

The core functionality of Jetlag Fighter is a personalized daily activity calendar providing advice based on the selected therapy type, the user's personal profile, and trip details.

In addition, the app contains a graph showing the real-time predicted adjustment, an alertness meter indicating the body's peak levels of performance, in-flight tips based on trip length, and a multimedia guide to jet lag.

The Jet Lag Fighter app is £1.19 or $1.99 and can be downloaded from iTunes.
