Get Notified with CheapOair’s Flight Watcher to receive trip monitoring emails and SMS alerts!
Flight Delay Notifications
While flights may get delayed from time to time, when you’re signed up for our Flight Watcher service, you’ll never be out of the loop. Simply provide Flight Watcher with your preferred method of communication and, should any complications arise with your flight, we can notify you via email or text message – no matter where you are.
Flight Watcher will instantly alert you any time your flight has been cancelled or diverted to another airport. What’s even better is that we’ll send an alert to your email address or your mobile phone. That means you can react instantly – even on the go.
Terminal and Gate Change Alert
Arrival and departure gates are set up well before a flight ever prepares for takeoff. However, fluctuating air traffic patterns mean that this could change with very little notice. Fortunately, Flight Tracker will update you with up-to-the-minute alerts should any of your arrival or departure information change.
Online Check-In Link
If you need to check in on the fly, but you aren’t near a computer or your terminal – we’ve got you covered. Flight Watcher will send you a pre-trip reminder email complete with a link where you can check in for your flight. Simply click the link using any internet-connected device and you’re ready to fly.
Airport Weather Information
Flight Watcher tracks weather conditions on over 13,000 airports worldwide. That means that you’ll always have up to date, accurate information about your departure airport. So whether you need to pack for rain – or prepare for another flight altogether – Flight Watcher can help you prepare for anything.
Flight Watcher is a service that scours thousands of global flights every day to keep you apprised of delays, cancellations, and more. We collect data from government agencies, airlines, airports, reservation systems and other sources to give you the most in-depth, accurate, up-to-the-minute information on your flight. Plus, we’ll send you updates right to your email address or mobile phone!
In the event of a delay or a cancellation – especially one due to inclement weather – we do our best to bring you only the most relevant and topical information. Our systems update every few minutes, meaning that our estimates are rarely off by more than a few minutes or so.
We offer incredibly accurate flight tracking in North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and more. While coverage may vary from location to location, we work constantly to update our data to give you more complete and more accurate information.
While Flight Watcher can certainly give you information on arrival and departure gates, it’s recommended that you check back to verify this information regularly. Due to air traffic conditions, flights could change gates with very little notice.
That’s entirely up to you. We understand that the day of your departure will be very busy, and chances are you won’t have a lot of time to check your flight status. Luckily, when you sign up for Flight Watcher, you’ll have the option of telling us the method of communication that’s most convenient for you – text alerts or email notifications.
With everything that can impact a flight’s arrival time – be it weather, air traffic, or some other factor – nobody can promise 100% accuracy. However, we can tell you that we work with a comprehensive network of sources to refresh our systems every few minutes. For the most accurate reading, consider checking your status regularly. But with Flight Watcher, you’ll never be more than a few minutes behind.
Unfortunately, many of our sources of information don’t provide a reason why a flight was delayed. As a result, while we can give you a quick, accurate alert that your flight was delayed, at this time we cannot provide the reasoning behind it.
Should you need to rebook your flight, or if you need to look for a quick alternative, simply contact us at 888-592-6410(US, Canada) (for international 212-478-0335). This number will also be in the cancellation email you receive. Just give us a call and a representative will help you with your rebooking.
We constantly work with our network of sources, including direct airline feeds, the FAA ASDI data feed and others. We monitor all this information every day, and we’ll send it to you as soon as we hear about it.
Unfortunately, at this time Flight Watcher is not able to relay the reasoning for your flight’s cancellation. While we can get you fast, accurate data regarding your trip cancellation, our sources of information do not provide the reason why.
Just keep your phone or laptop handy! We’ll send all of your alerts to your preferred method of communication, which you are able to select when you sign up for Flight Watcher. Whenever there’s a gate or terminal change, we’ll either text or email you, depending on your preference.
While it would be impossible to offer up-to-the-second information on your flight, we can offer you detailed info every few minutes. Of course, the best practice is to check in on your status if you’re feeling uncomfortable, but know that our information is never more than a few minutes out of sync.
Many carriers allow you to check-in ahead of time, but several of them want you to be the one who tracks when you can or cannot check-in. With our Online Check-In link, we’ll notify you as soon as your flight is ready for check-in. It’s just that easy.
