Orbit World Travel is delighted to announce the latest enhancement to their Orbit Enterprise Platform delivering to clients a more informed experience, via up-to-the-second flight tracking information.

Partnering with leading aviation technology group, VariFlight, who provide flight status data to more than 300 million travelers and thousands of leading businesses around the world.

VariFlight’s data is sourced from airlines, airports, ATC centres worldwide and its global network of ADS-B surveillance technology receivers which track equipped aircraft. The information shared by the aircraft includes a GPS-derived location, speed, altitude and other pertinent data, and is transmitted approximately once per second.

The enhancement to Orbit Enterprise will integrate real-time flight updates and status, including on-time departure, delays, cancellations, flight progress, and flight diversions.

The aviation industry is forging ahead with its recovery to meet the increased demand for travel, however, it’s not all blue skies. Flights can be delayed or diverted for any number of reasons, and pandemic-related issues continue to contribute to flight cancellations – even in countries open for tourism.

Founding Partner and Director of Orbit World Travel, Lisa Story said, “This integration couldn’t come at a better time. Flights can be delayed or cancelled for many reasons but even more so in the current landscape. Our clients are looking for a solution to keep them as up-to-date and informed as possible. The VariFlight integration in Orbit Enterprise will put the control back in the travel experience for travellers and travel arrangers, at a time where contingency plans have become common place”.
