Operating in Kaunas for only a year, the OAG office will soon develop about 60 percent of all OAG technology products both for the airlines and the passengers. The organization started the OAG (Official Aviation Guide), and it has been operating for over 90 years now. Since the start, the company has been a leading player for data and, today, for digital information in the aviation market.
“Our business area is extremely dynamic and engaging. We control huge arrays of data. Every day, we process 4 million flight change information, affecting almost 12 million air passengers. The solutions we offer include the world’s largest flight scheduling database (OAG Schedules), a real-time route and flight status system (OAG Flightview), and a passenger traffic flow monitoring and analysis toolkit (OAG Analytics). In addition, we award the most efficient airlines and airports in OAG on-time performance star ratings: a highly respected rating in the aviation market,”says Simona Vabalė, Head of the OAG office in Kaunas.
Although OAG is not a large organization – with 170 employees spread across the offices in the United Kingdom, the United States, Lithuania, Singapore, Japan, and China – it works with top brands such as Google, Bing, Expedia, Skyscanner, British Airways or United.
OAG’s main clients are airlines, airports and technology solutions providers. OAG officially opened its office in Kaunas in September 2018. Since the start, it has grown to 27 employees and plans to expand even more in the coming years.
Most employees are software development and testing engineers, data scientists, and a few specialists working on data operations. The company is currently hiring IT infrastructure engineers to work in product teams.
