eXPERT DATA MANAGEMENT TO SUPPORT YOUR PASSENGERS
WHY SHARE YOUR FLIGHT STATUS WITH OAG?
Partnering with OAG to manage your flight status distribution and quality is simple, easy and highly beneficial to your customers and is free of charge.
For a quick insight as to our how you can share your flight status with OAG from a technical perspective, download our guide below.
The majority of flight status data we handle comes direct from airlines. However, for those airlines who are not sending us data directly we also get feeds directly from airports and government bodies. The data is then put through a variety of stringent quality checks.
The quality control process resolves issues combined with our detailed understanding of status complexities to ensure airlines have the most accurate
real-time flight status out in the marketplace.
It is easy to integrate your data with us. We accept a variety of formats via different transport methods. Examples of some transmission methods are:
- Message Queue Middleware (MQ Series and MSMQ queues)
- FTP (SFTP)
- Active MQ
- Web Service Calls - where OAG calls a Web Service that an Airline stands up
- HTTP(S) Post - where an Airline would post to a web page OAG stands up
- Email - where an airline would send flight status messages via email to OAG
Some airlines prefer VPN setup (usually for Queue or Web Service implementations).

We do support all different types of formats available - from industry standard to a proprietary one. Even though it is easier to integrate standard formats, our development team is ready to find a way to digest your data.
