Traveling alone? Not any more. Check out “Planely” before your next flight

From their website:

Planely is a free service that makes air travel more fun.

Whenever you’re traveling by plane, tell us your flight details, and we’ll connect you with other Planely Fliers who are on the same flight, or at the same departure or arrival airports as you.

You can then make arrangements to sit together on the plane, have a coffee on the ground or share a cab home.

Why? Because we believe that your fellow fliers are the greatest untapped resource of knowledge and entertainment on plane journeys.

About Planely

Tell Planely which flights you’re traveling on and Planely will tell you who else is traveling with you on the plane and at your departure and arrival airports.

Together we hope to change the airline industry for the better by connecting you with the greatest untapped resource of knowledge and entertainment on your journey — your fellow fliers.

We’re creating the opportunity for you to contact passengers with overlapping itineraries ahead of time and make mutual arrangements to sit together on the plane, or meet in your departure or arrival airports.

In the future we will help you see if there’s anyone else around you already know through social networks, and all sorts of other things that we’re waiting for you to tell us you want to do.

The site has a simple interface too, plus the ability to login with Facebook and states it will always be free. All it needs now is a few regular plane travelers to get onboard and start sharing their flight details via the 3 step process:

  1. Register your flight
  2. See who else is flying with you
  3. Connect and sit together
