With reports of congested airports and busy runways making the news, many would-be travellers are concerned about being on time for flights, as well as to avoid inconveniencing people delegated to pick them up from the airport.

However, this festive season flight details and up-to-the-minute departure and arrival times are an SMS away.

Contemporary mobile download service provider, NXT Mobile, and Airport Company of SA (ACSA) have teamed up in an effort to make travelling to and from South African airports easier, thanks to an innovative service called NXT Flights.

By SMSing the required flight number to 35007, users will receive a reply SMS containing the latest estimated departure time, arrival time, take-off location and landing destination.

“NXT Mobile is pleased to have been able to join forces with ACSA to launch this new and very exciting service to the South African market. With NXT Flights all the flight information is at your fingertips and the thought of missing a flight or hanging around at airports due to delays is a thing of the past”, says Bryan Diamond, managing director of NXT Mobile.

The NXT Flights service supports all local and International airlines and major airports and each SMS costs only R3. For more information on NXT mobile, available downloads and services please visit
