I’m usually a complete mess when it comes to air travel, largely because I hate having to go through customs, but also because I constantly second-guess myself and quintuple-check that I’ve got passports, flight itineraries, and all manner of other knick knacks.

Track flights with this app and more. It really is easy to use and has been touted as one of the more reputable flight tracker apps for iPhone by users all over the App Store.

You can search for your flight by various criteria such as the airline, flight number, and the date of departure, or alternatively you can simply input the departure and arrival destinations and the date to be presented with a list of possible options.

You’ll be pleased to know that App in the Air - Live Track Flight and Airport also allows you to import flights using the Tripit service, so I’d definitely recommend trying that out if you’re looking to save a little extra time.

After finalizing your search results and selecting the correct flight, you can then access more of the integral features of this app, including a very handy list creation tool which you can use to ensure that you don’t forget any of your essential items.

Far from being a simple flight tracker, App in the Air also enables you to check in from directly within the app, meaning you’ve got everything you need in a single app to save you endless amounts of time, hassle, and the worry that usually comes along with making sure you’ve covered all your bases.

All in all, I really am quite impressed with what the developer has managed to put together in this app, and I would definitely like to recommend it to any of you who even half as frantic as I tend to be whenever I travel by air. Go check it out and you’ll see what I mean!
