Airports will be able to provide travellers a user-friendly presentation of where they can fly to from their location, either directly or via a connection, through a new product from OAG (Official Airline Guide).
The interactive timetable and route-mapping tool, called OAG Route Mapper, will be launched next month. Hosted by OAG, it can be integrated into the airport’s own website.
Regional airports offering mainly short-haul routes operated by low-cost airlines may be the biggest beneficiaries, as the tool could influence consumers to consider the airport as a convenient feeder for long-haul services for travel to unusual onward destinations.
John Weber, managing director OAGback Aviation Solutions, said: “The ability to visualise a route structure is a great benefit to all airports, large and small alike. With the new application, airports can demonstrate how their schedules link them to the rest of the world. This is particularly helpful to smaller regional airports whose reach beyond their main hub is often unrecognised without the aid of a route map.
