It’s safe to say that airline travel is a good deal easier these days than in the past. In fact, we have almost TOO much information at our disposal, available almost immediately at the touch of our fingers. If you’re planning a trip and want to be as well informed as possible, we suggest weeding out the not so useful apps to download for the airport, and instead plug these into your smartphone instead.

If you book and utilize ground transportation either getting to or going from the airport, the Dav El Boston Coach app is definitely one for you. You can track your driver’s progress and keep up to date on any changes, and, more importantly, your driver can track your flight and know if you are delayed. The lack of trickle down delays is welcome after a long flight.
Take advantage of the apps that are available for download to make your trip to, through, and from the airport a smoother and calmer one.
