Passengers flying out of and into Newark Airport can check the status of any flight delays at the airport by using the Airport Status Information tool provided by the FAA's Air Traffic Control System Command Center. Alternatively, passengers can view the status of any potential arrival and departure delays using a third-party website, such as iFly.com and FlightView.
Both the FAA and the iFly.com status trackers only display the general delay status of the Newark airport and does not provide information on specific flights. The FAA airport status information displays three types of delays: delays by destination, general departure delays and general arrival delays. IFly.com displays only delays that occur for either departing flights or arriving flights to Newark Airport. Both websites also display the time of update for the information supplied. IFly.com also provides a flight status arrival tool that passengers can use to see flight-specific delay information.
FlightView provides a complete listing of all flights arriving to and departing from Newark Airport. The display shows each flight with various information, such as the flight's origin, its status, scheduled flight time, departure gate and the operating airline. The FlightView website also contains a delay-specific section for Newark Airport, which receives data from the FAA status website.
