With friends and family now starting to arrive on holiday via Dalaman Airport these services should prove useful and save expensive parking charges too if flights are delayed.

With friends and family now starting to travel Dalaman Airport getting accurate information on flight arrivals and departures is a real help.

Not only can you make sure you or their transfer company pick them up on time but also you can minimise expensive parking charges if you’re left waiting around at the airport for a delayed flight.

So how can you find out when flights are due?

By going to the Dalaman Airport website. The site lists live arrivals and departures.

Just scroll the bar to see all the flights and click on the one you want and you’ll be taken to a page of all flights showing when the flight is due to land.

The page also lists departures too.

If you have a WAP enabled phone you can also go to this link to check the live arrivals/departures.

But the really clever part is to find out the flight number of your friends. When you have that the go to the site www.flightradar24.com input the number and track their flight in the air.

The service is a bit hit and miss south of Izmir and Dalaman Airport is not shown on their map but you should see their flight in the air leaving the UK and over most of Europe in REAL TIME. Give it a go, it’s fun!

So now there’s no excuse to turn up late to pick up the visting relatives unless you like to hand around the airport of course!
