Weather Awareness Apps
Smart-phone Apps are a great tool that will keep you informed of weather conditions before you leave on your business travel.
Weather is a part of life that cannot be controlled. Having good weather awareness before your flight can help you in making smart travel decisions. Though some of us “control freaks” get freaked out by weather delays while traveling, we are at the mercy of many factors that are beyond our control.
There are various factors that will impact you while flying. For instance, sometimes a “ground-stoppage” due to electric storms will delay or halt airport operations. Other times weather may affect flight plans, which are often a good thing since the mid-flight aircraft can hopefully dodge pending “bumps in the air”. The crux of it all is that we must adhere to the safety outlines and plans in place.
When traveling on business, we recommend you access some of the excellent smart-phone apps available today. We highly suggest the weatherchannel.com app for you to get up-to-the-minute conditions for your business travels. Carol Nosches, CTC, our Corporate Travel Services Manager has the weatherchannel.com app loaded on her iPhone. It allows her to know the weather before leaving on her travels. She feels the app is a great travel tool because it gives her the ability to check the weather anywhere in the world! A secondary bonus is that it also enables you to know what clothing to pack for your trip so that you can properly dress for the weather at your business destination.
World Travel Business Elite and our travel advisor’s always suggest that before you fly to make sure that you adhere to great weather awareness. It will serve you well to know the conditions at all your destinations. The weather apps will help you travel safely, effectively and efficiently.
