How it works

An app-based moving map up-to the minute streaming information of the world below a flight route. Traveler’s route and current location are constantly updated, and triggers related information from our database. A web-based version of Traveler Eye was also developed to be installed on existing in-flight entertainment portals.

World below route information includes: geography, nature, current weather, local time, language, country, flag, currency, capital, food, music, famous places and people, and historical facts. It also allows the traveler to favorite and share a favorite part on social media accounts as well as sending full journey details via email.
