The TripIt app for iOS provides support for iMessage and upgraded flight alerts that take full advantage of the rich notifications of iOS 10.
With TripIt for iMessage, TripIt users can send flight information, hotel reservations, rental car details and other travel plans without leaving Messages. Travelers can share plans from their next two trips to easily keep family, friends and coworkers updated on travel plans.
Please note that you have to install the main TripIt app to have the accompanying iMessage app.
