Mobile Apps Available For iPhone, BlackBerry, Android
Aviation data company OAG has released "OAG FlightTimes" on
iPhone, BlackBerry and Android. This mobile app has the capability
to display published flight schedules for every airline and airport
in the world.
OAG FlightTimes is available to airlines and airports who want
to provide their customers with the convenience of flight schedules
at their fingertips. FlightTimes allows companies to brand the app
and customize the content, such as by airport or airline, to meet
their specific business strategies.
This app is simply downloaded from your airport or airline
website or from the appropriate app store, and users are then able
to search for flights by route, by airport or by flight number.
iPhone customers have an additional search option via the
interactive global navigation feature. Search results can be saved,
and saved flights are automatically updated when next accessed, so
the user will always see the most current scheduled operating
FlightTimes users are able to search for direct or connecting
flights. Results include easy-to-read details about the carrier,
flight number, departure and arrival airports, terminals, total
travel time and stops. OAG FlightTimes is linked to OAG Flight
Status for real-time display of the estimated and actual flight
departure and arrival times.
FlightTimes is based on OAG's database with schedules for over
1000 airlines and more than 4000 airports. The database is
refreshed daily with up to 50,000 updates. OAG schedules data has
been at the core of travel distribution services for decades, with
capabilities to display every flight scheduled, regardless of date,
price or availability. This unique OAG FlightTimes feature gives
travel suppliers and road warriors a quick look at all scheduled
flights – to plan a trip or review options when changes occur
