on OAG Flights, the only online flight lookup service that displays
every scheduled flight worldwide - including low cost airlines. Fare
search and booking capability is available immediately on OAG Flights.

original source of the flight schedules information you see on most
travel websites, but without the bias. We are introducing fares and
booking to our online service as a direct result of customer feedback.
Our subscribers love the completeness and simplicity of OAG Flights, and
want the ability to book as well.  We already use SideStep to power
bookings on our hosted timetable solutions for airports and we are
delighted to extend our partnership to offer our business and leisure
travel customers the most comprehensive flight search on the web.”

Tim Simmonds, Director of Business Development, Europe, said,
“SideStep’s innovative real-time search technology further enhances
OAG’s current online experience for travellers and those who arrange
travel.  OAG Flights customers now have the ability to compare fares
from more than 200 leading travel sites via SideStep’s search engine to
find the Web’s best travel bargains, and then click through to make a
booking directly with the relevant online agency, consolidator or
airline.”

OAG Flights is a subscription-based service. It shows departure and
arrival times, flight durations, airport and terminal information and
related information about direct and connecting flights. Subscribers are
also able to keep track of a flight’s real time status to check whether
it is on-time or delayed.
