Long Beach Airport (LGB) has launched a newly revamped website with a modern design, increased functionality and innovative features.
“This update will make the Long Beach Airport’s website much more user-friendly and easier for customers,” said Mayor Robert Garcia.
Commonly searched travel information such as flight status, ground transportation, parking rates and shopping and dining options is prominently featured along with community and pilot information. Content is strategically located in a more intuitive interface and a modern, clean layout.
“It is extremely important for the community to have access to real-time airport information,” said Airport Director Cynthia Guidry. “Long Beach Airport is proud to unveil our redesigned website, which has many new features that will be extremely useful.”
The new responsive site makes it easier to navigate, including on mobile devices. Users will have the capability to search for arrival and departure information by origin, airline and flight number. A website-specific search engine also allows users to search strictly for content available on LGB’s site.
Other new features include a searchable map showing local hotels, dining options and points of interest in Long Beach and an interactive flight tracker with live tracking maps providing real-time flight status. This live map displays worldwide commercial flights as well as general aviation flights in the United States and Canada, which can be searched by airline, flight number, city or airport. These features are useful for travelers as well as aviation enthusiasts since it also includes photos and details about individual aircraft such as altitude, speed and aircraft type.
The design of the new website brings lgb.org in line with the redesigned City of Long Beach website completed in 2015, including the ability to translate content into Filipino, Khmer and Spanish. The new website is based on the Episerver CMS. City of Long Beach’s Technology and Innovation staff, assisted by area firm Thinklogic, designed and coded the site.
