OAG, the global travel and transport information company, is providing a fully hosted flight status alert service to the Star Alliance network. (2/15/2007)

This is available through the recently re-launched Star Alliance website and provides business and leisure customers with a service, which alerts them to changes to the scheduled departure or arrival time of a flight. The Flight Tracker alert service enables customers travelling on the Star Alliance network to track flights of any member airline, irrespective of where they are based, and also to track interline flights where customers connect between two or more member carriers.

Customers simply register online to receive alerts via email or SMS message to a mobile phone or device. OAG’s Flight Tracker service is powered by data supplied directly by the Star Alliance member airlines.

Duncan Alexander, managing director, OAG said the OAG Flight Tracker alert service compliments the existing alert services which some Star Alliance member carriers already provide in their home markets.

“The OAG service works for anyone, anywhere, for any direct or connecting flight on the Star Alliance network,” he said. “Star Alliance is a significant customer for us because it is the largest airline alliance with its member airlines representing around one third of all flights in the world.”
