OAG has struck a partnership deal with SideStep to enable OAG to integrate a fare search and booking facility within its hosted timetable solutions. OAG currently provides timetable solutions to some of the world’s largest airports and the integration of SideStep’s functionality will enable timetable visitors to search and compare fares for flights into or out of a particular airport and then click through to make a booking.
The new service is available immediately.
Duncan Alexander, MD Europe at OAG, commented: “Our partnership with SideStep offers tangible benefits to our airport customers around the world. We now can offer airports the ability to extend their online offering and we expect most will want this option on their web sites.”
Kevin Eyres, MD SideStep Europe, said, “Travel search is an ideal way for site owners to offer their customers a first rate travel experience. SideStep’s innovative real-time search technology further enhances OAG’s current travel services by providing its timetable customers with the most comprehensive travel search on the web.”
