Follow SAS Captain and FlightRadar24 in the first Track Tweet event ever
– It’s on flight SK 586/SK 586 to Mallorca and back again the event will take place, Christer Lundström tells Scandinavian Traveler. Via Twitter, Instagram and sascaptain.com we take our followers behind the scenes, before, during and after the flight. Unfortunately we don’t have WiFi on the plane, but that’s when Flightradar24 will take over the tweeting. We will take pictures during the flight as well and post them later.
– This is going to be a fun test, says Christer Lundström. FlightRadar 24 has a big and dedicated tracking community and we think this is going to be great! If it becomes a success we will certainly do it again.
Flightradar24 is a flight tracking service that provides you with real-time info about thousands of aircraft around the world. Each month Flightradar24.com gets more than 25 million visits and the apps have been downloaded more than 5 million times. Read more about Flightradar24 and Flight tracking here »
What is Flight Tracking?
Flight Tracking is an activity by enthusiasts or regular travelers where you via an app in your smartphone and radar can follow and keep track of every airplane in the air. You can see an airplane in the sky and with your app find out what plane it is, where it is going and if it is on time according to schedule. Flight tracking via software is a relatively new activity, it’s growing, not only among enthusiasts but also among regular travelers as people like to know whether a flight has safely landed or whether everything goes according to schedule so it is indeed the time to go to the airport.
Follow #tracktweet on Twitter and Instagram Sunday May 24th. Starting at check in 6.15 am and ending in the afternoon.
No pictures or other Social Media activities will be performed by an active crew member during critical phases of flight. This, in order to respect company regulations.
