LONDON, January 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
OAG, the global leader in aviation intelligence and a UBM Aviation brand, has extended the coverage of its flight schedule monitoring service OAG alerts to include notifications of airport as well as Wide versus Narrow body aircraft equipment changes.
A web-based system that eliminates the need to manually log-in to a database to search for changes, OAG alerts tracks and delivers instant notifications of competitive airline routes, flight frequencies, and aircraft equipment changes based on registered users' selected criteria. It is ideal for airline revenue management and network planners; airport route development and ground handling managers; and administrators in all sectors of the tourism and aviation industries.
With economic forecasts for the year ahead indicating that the challenges of the last couple of years are set to continue, real-time competitive change alerts are invaluable to airline revenue management and network planners, airport route development and ground handling managers as they strive to stay ahead of the market. OAG alerts, the only product in the market to offer this functionality and level of visibility of competitor activity, now features a handy overview 'at-a-glance' chart and a new export to excel function for easy integration with aviation analysis and planning software.
"Having moment-by-moment access to competitive movements enables rapid response to potential advantages and threats and can literally mean a gain or loss of millions of dollars in incremental revenue", said John Grant, Executive Vice President, UBM Aviation.
