Passngr app hosted by Munich Airport adds real-time flight tracking powered by Flightradar24

With the new Passngr app, a cooperation of German airports lead by Munich airport, users can now track flights arriving and departing Munich, Hamburg, and Dusseldorf airports in real-time. Thanks to the Flightradar24 SDK, users can follow flights from directly inside the Passngr app, now available for Android and iOS, and see a flight’s actual path. Flightradar24 provides real-time data and an intuitive map interface to follow flights to or from all three airports, with more airports to launch the Passngr app soon.

From the arrival or departure boards, users can tap on a live flight to find its exact position of the flight and information about the aircraft and its speed and altitude.

Passngr’s implementation of the Flightradar24 SDK is the first by an airport cooperative, and follows inclusion of the SDK by major airlines, like easyJet, in their mobile apps.
