Travel smarter with the Lumo map

Posted by Bala Chandran on Jan 20, 2020 1:39:58 PM

We released the Lumo map last year, but it's worth re-upping given all the delays we've been having globally.

Luckily, you've got Lumo – a quick look at the Lumo map tells you the state of delays right now, as well as delays expected over the next 48 hours. Just click on the map icon on the top right of the page and view the Lumo Index by airport to help you plan your trip better. We keep track of everything from weather disruptions to airline waivers to Air Traffic Control restrictions to keep you updated on what to expect.

So how are Lumo’s predictions different from Google’s?

Posted by Bala Chandran on Oct 11, 2019 1:28:42 AM
