OAG and RDC deliver better access to international online fares28.09.2017
OAG and RDC have developed a more extensive partnership to provide access to enhanced fare analysis across the globe. RDC’s market leading fare data is now included in the latest version of OAG’s passenger traffic tool, Traffic Analyser 2.0.
Customers will be offered access to online fare data for Europe, Middle East and Africa stretching back to January 2015 and for Asia Pacific, back to January 2016. In total, fare data has been added for 56 airlines covering over 6,400 airport pairs.
The partnership also marks the start of a much closer sales relationship between OAG and RDC. Through OAG’s global sales channels, RDC’s airline performance analysis tool ‘Apex’ is now available in the Asia Pacific and North American markets.
Commenting on the expanded relationship, Mark Clarkson EVP Product Management for OAG:
“The addition of the online fare data delivers a unique proposition for our customers – by providing transparency on GDS-based fares and available online fares, our customers have more relevant data to make informed decisions on the fast analysis from Traffic Analyser.”
RDC, Peter Hind:
”We are delighted to have strengthened our partnership with OAG. We have worked hard to develop unique, relevant data to support analysts and decision makers. Having seen the ambition of the new Traffic Analyser tool, it was an obvious fit for our fare data. At the same time, being able to leverage OAG’s sales strength to promote Apex in Asia and North America is a win-win for us both.”
Apex delivers quick and accurate route analysis with an audited cost database against real airline financial data. Module based, it provides complementary analysis to OAG’s core analytics suite with access to fare analysis, route profitability and airline financial data.
