Now owned by Electra, the major private equity investment firm, (See BTN 13 May) OAG, the aviation data specialist, has launched OAG Connections Analyser, an innovative tool that generates accurate flight connections information based on real-time data.
The first product of its kind, OAG Connections Analyser makes use of OAG’s global schedules to deliver what is claimed to be the industry’s most advanced flight connections engine. It provides the tools which analysts need to identify trends, spot commercial opportunities and monitor competitor activity. Users are able to analyse the benefits of altering existing flight schedules and explore the viability of potential new services through the creation of ‘phantom’ flights, which can be compared to existing services.
The product offers data on single and double connections while utilising Minimum Connect Times (MCT) Exception Tables. This will enable network planners, scheduling teams and aviation consultants to evaluate carrier and airport networks that involve multiple connections. Users are also expected to include airport marketing and commercial teams, tourist boards and government bodies.
In the next stage of development, low-cost carriers’ (LCC) potential connections will be added to the tool. This will provide the industry with another way of analysing the impact of LCCs and a growing trend of customers building their own connections. www.oag.com
