Christchurch airport service soars

Up-to-the-minute flight arrival and departure times for Christchurch International Airport went live on the airport's Web site yesterday - and a mobile phone version is next.

Up-to-the-minute flight arrival and departure times for Christchurch International Airport went live on the airport's Web site yesterday.

The information, which is updated every two minutes, will show international and domestic flights except those from Ansett New Zealand, and will be the same as that on the flight information display screens in the airport. Ansett flights will be added as soon as an interface is developed.

Christchurch International Airport’ information systems manager, Stewart Gibbon, says the airport plans to extend the service early next year by introducing a Web-based interface for cellphones.
