I’m delighted to announce the availability of our newest version of flightSpeak. This release marks the beginning of our focus on transforming the airport experience — by making airports less stressful and more fun.
We arrived at this milestone after reaching out to over 80 airports, listening to over 300 travelers, and hearing from countless travel industry partners. This approach elevated our thinking, and helped us learn two major things: travelers need better access to information as they travel through multiple airports, and that they are interested in connecting and sharing information with each other. These findings shaped our creativity and efforts towards the newest version. A few highlights:
No more need for multiple airport apps
Travelers asked for a single delightful experience — an easy to use app they could use at every airport they visited. With that focus, we’ve aggregated data across the Web, Google, Yelp, and much more to bring you a release with comprehensive information from over 80 airports (and growing!) across the country. In addition — you never have to follow multiple twitter feeds from your favorite airports. We’ve collated them all for you — all in one place. See more…
Never miss your favorite store
Airports are filled with delightful shopping experiences. Whether it’s treating yourself to that impulse purchase, or looking for the perfect gift for that special someone, we’ve put gathered information from over 10,000 stores across 80 airports and placed it at your fingertips. The information includes store descriptions, photos, hours of operation, and store ratings — by travelers, for travelers. You’ll no longer have to wonder if you can find that massage you’re craving at your destination airport, or the gift you need to pick up. See More…
Supercharge your curiosity
Ever wondered why people were at the airport? Where were they going?
With Why I fly, get a sneak peek into why travelers around you are at the airport. We’ve seen teams going to conventions; families visiting grandma for Thanksgiving; teams heading for their first away game, and much more. Share why you fly, and join the fun! See more…
Share your discoveries
Airports are fascinating places filled with people, places, and discoveries. With aroundMe, you can share interesting photos and comments about the things that make you smile (and frown!) during your airport visit. Discover & share airport art, interesting food, celebrity sightings,, and much more with aroundMe. Let the people watching begin! See more…
A note of thanks
A milestone like this couldn’t have been possible without a massive group of amazing people. First of all — to the flightSpeak team near and far. We’ve started something special…thank you for everything you’ve done!
