The technology behind the Easyjet Flight Tracker
EasyJet offers a very convenient live tracking system that receives its data from a network of over 10,000 ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast) receivers. These are all hosted by private individuals and companies throughout the world. Information gathered is transmitted to various servers enabling precise aircraft location tracking.
This is fairly new technology that uses an on-board satellite navigation system that intermittently transmits an aircraft’s location, ground speed, altitude and velocity to other planes in proximity and to air traffic control. This technology (ADS-B) proves to be more accurate than traditional radar and greatly enhances the performance of flight tracking. Another benefit is that it’s able to show flight positions in real time. Working through the on-board GPS, the aircraft’s location is transmitted via a radio signal to a receiver on the ground.
EasyJet flight tracker – An award winning app
In 2015 the award winning EasyJet flight tracker app was made even better by adding aircraft tracking making use of ADS-B technology when they collaborated with Flightradar24 which serves at least 1.5 million unique users per day. This partnership enabled EasyJet to develop this feature into their app which gives information on the exact whereabouts of flights up to 3 hours before flying. As you can imagine, this feature greatly enhances customer experience.
Even flights which are not equipped with ADS-B can be tracked by Multilateration (MLAT) which merges schedule and flight status information from airlines and airports enabling an aircraft’s position data to be obtained. This relatively new technological feature enhances easyJet’s reputation for customer service and as Europe’s leading airline.
An award winning service that connects Europe at great value and customer service, easyJet carries 68 million passengers a year and things look to only be on the up with plans well underway to expand its fleet. EasyJet’s continued use of technology such as the use of ADS-B tracking will no doubt serve to enhance customer service for many years to come.
Note: The EasyJet flight tracker is free to use and works on any smart device.
Based in London’s Luton Airport, easyJet has seen an impressive expansion since its relatively humble beginnings back in 1995. The low-cost airline has 28 bases spread out across Europe and along with associated easyJet Switzerland, flies a fleet of over 200 aircraft. Most of these are the twin-engined airbus A319 able to carry 128 passengers. During 2014 the airline’s fleet carried a staggering 65 million passengers to and from various destinations from all corners of Europe branding it the largest European airline.
Its scheduled services boast more than 820 routes throughout more than 30 countries from places as varied as nearby Scotland to Amsterdam to Sicily to Morocco, and a host of other countries and cities on the continent and beyond. From the Canaries out in the Atlantic to Cyprus way out in the far reaches of the Mediterranean, easyJet are transporting passengers daily from one side of Europe to the other.
Speaking of Cyprus, it was Greek Cypriot Stelios Haji-Ioannou who started the enterprise back in 1995 with 2 leased Boeing 737-200 at which time it only served 2 routes from Luton to Glasgow and Edinburgh. By 1998 the airline had bought a substantial stake in a Swiss airline called TAE Basle which was swiftly renamed easyJet Switzerland resulting in the airline’s beginning to operate outside the UK with a base in Geneva, Switzerland.
An expanding fleet
EasyJet’s fleet is made up of the twin engined Airbus A319-100 and is the world’s largest operator of this aircraft. Between 2017 and on into 2022 there are further plans for expansion with 2 new additions to the fleet. The next years EasyJet will add to their fleet with the Airbus A320neo and A321neo. Planes that can respectively carry 186 and 235 passengers. This expanded fleet will undoubtedly serve to enhance customer experience even further. Rest assured though, EasyJet will keep safety at the core of their business no matter the level of expanse.
