Travelport takes global airline data access from OAG


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
OAG Aviation
: 21 December, 2009  (Application Story)
Comprehensive global flight schedules to be made available to Travelport’s systems in new long term contract with OAG Aviation
OAG has signed a long term contract to provide its consolidated global airline schedule and minimum connect time (MCT) data to Travelport, one of the world’s leading providers of global distribution systems (GDS). This extends and enhances the established partnership between OAG and Travelport.

Travelport’s Galileo and Worldspan GDS platforms will continue to have full access to OAG data under the terms of the licensing agreement. The information will be used by the GDS provider’s network of customers across the globe including on and offline travel agencies, corporations and travel suppliers. OAG will also provide regular feeds of reference information along with a special data file tailored specifically for Travelport’s Business Intelligence Suite.

“Our mission is to be the world’s leading provider of informed travel choice and having access to the trusted and flexible data services that OAG provides is critical to our customers. We are therefore delighted to have concluded this new long term agreement and look forward to working closely with the OAG team over the coming months to ensure we achieve our goals in this area,” said Daniel Cox, Director Sourcing of Travelport.

“OAG is proud of its track record of supplying Galileo and Worldspan with airline schedules data and related content continuously since their inception,” said Brendan Hickman, Chief Commercial Officer for OAG. “We are honoured that Travelport continues to place its trust in OAG for data quality and reliability, and look forward to an even closer working relationship in support of Travelport’s evolving distribution strategies.”

Hickman continued, “Our investment in leading edge technologies and the unequalled knowledge and expertise of our people put us at the vanguard of database management. We are committed to pushing the boundaries of excellence to retain our leadership position in aviation data and services.”

OAG already has a separate agreement to supply data to online travel company Orbitz Worldwide, which is part-owned by Travelport.
