KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Nearly all flights are on time at McGhee Tyson. One 5:30 a.m. United flight was delayed for an hour.

If your flight is delayed, how to get in touch with your airline, or what's on the menu for lunch, Knoxville's McGhee Tyson Airport has the answer. Just in time for holiday travel, the airport released a new app for iPhone and iPad users
