Travel disruption is the bane of business commuting whether it be by road, rail or air. Delays can arise from bad weather, industrial disputes, air traffic problems, runway hold ups and of course volcanoes.
Those clever people at Luton, OAG, have now come up with an application called Migo (Move Intelligently and Go), essentially a travel disruption mitigation programme. It is fully customisable and OAG industry clients can market Migo as their own offering as a way of keeping their clients happy when things go wrong (as they inevitably do).
Migo can tell you the current average arrival/departure delay situation for whatever airport you choose, and for a specific flight. If an aircraft (or train, or even a ferry) is seriously delayed or cancelled the information is then fed into Migo which will find an alternative routing, live. This can include local train transport and road connections too.
It is all part of the main OAG database and therefore the flights’ information is completely up to date, including aircraft arrival time (and where it currently is en route), who else offers a parallel service, aircraft type, capacity and future schedules. Clients are not just airlines and travel bookers but the whole spectrum of the industry, purchasing whatever information they want. www.oag.com
