BOSTON (Feb. 20, 2013) — FlightView has partnered with OAG, the market leader in aviation data and analysis, to offer comprehensive flight status data for flights everywhere in the world.
The partnership will bring real-time, accurate international flight status information to the millions of travelers – and those picking them up – that rely on FlightView every month. In 2012 alone, FlightView answered more than 2.3 billion requests for flight information.
"Accurate flight information is at the heart of the travel experience," said Mike Benjamin, CEO of FlightView, the day-of-travel information company. "Millions of travelers and hundreds of airports and airlines trust FlightView each day for information about flights that start or end in North America. Now we can offer that same, reliable intelligence for flights all over the globe."

The partnership adds significant value to airlines, which now, in addition to offering customers flight status information on the planes they operate, can offer real-time information on flights flown by international partners. Today's deal also enables FlightView to better integrate with travel technology companies, and international airports.
