Estonian Air opens Flight book application on Facebook

Juhan Tere, BC, Tallinn, 02.11.2010.Print version
Estonian Air carrier Estonian Air has introduced a new application named Flight Book on its social net's Facebook page which provides the on-line meeting room for Estonian Air's travelers, Estonian Air reports.

People who fly Estonian Air can use the application to view who is on the same flight with them, contact the other passengers, communicate with them and agree on sitting next to each other which is something novel on Estonian Air space, writes LETA.


Flight book can be found at


"Estonian Air opened a flight-based communication environment, which to my knowledge is the first in the world," said Rauno Parras, Estonian Air's Deputy President of Commercial Operations. "The new Facebook application allows passengers who use Estonian Air to communicate independently of the airline. Passengers who have registered in the environment can communicate with each other and agree to arrive at the airport at the same time so they can sit next to each other on the plane. I'm sure you have seen friends and acquaintances who are surprised at running into each other at the airport and finding out that they're on the same flight. The new application means that they can find out this pleasant surprise earlier. This allows people to spend their time on the place together."


Disclosing flight data is strictly voluntary and not compulsory for passengers. The list on Flight Book does not represent the official and full passenger manifest. Passengers themselves manage the Flight book and are the ones who add their information to the database. Passengers are responsible for adding or not adding themselves to the list and for the information about the flight being true. Estonian Air does not disclose passenger manifests or add passengers or flights to the Flight book page.


People who have not logged in can only see flyers who have made their profiles visible to everyone. A Facebook account is required for other activities (if a person wants to add themselves to a flight, be visible to their friends only, etc.).
