Airport Uses Web-Based Flight Info System


Departures, arrivals and other data for Fresno Yosemite International Airport's 92 daily flights are displayed on monitors and portable kiosks around the terminals.

The system does not rely on the airlines for their information, but calculates its own schedules using an independent radar, said airport spokeswoman Patti Miller. The system is called Passur FlightLink.

Officials say that within a month, flight information will also be available on the airport's Web site, The system cost the airport $139,000.

"It is a way to inexpensively kick information up to a more accurate level," said Ron Dunsky, a spokesman for Megadata Corp., which developed the software.
