Jersey City, August 29, 2000 Â OAG, the worldwide leading provider of travel information services, announced today its partnership with RPA Wireless, a leading wireless Application Service Provider, for the launch of its OAG Mobile E-Notification Service. With E-Notification, OAG subscribers can now receive up-to-date information on the status of a booked flight. Users can request a flight update that is automatically sent to them, regardless of the service used to book the flight. Travelers can direct updates to their mobile phone or pager, as well as to their e-mail address. Users can also change specifications on when and how they receive status information on a flight by flight basis. For example, a traveler can choose to be notified about the status of a flight even if itÂs scheduled to depart on time, or alternatively, only if there is a cancellation or delay.
E-Notificationmessages can includearrival and departure times, terminal, gate and baggage claim information. Users can even arrange for an E-notification to be sent to anyone who needs to know the status of a booked flight, such as a colleague, friend or family member.ÂThe selection of RPA as our preferred partner for E-notification is a natural for us,Â said Max Lane, Publishing General Manager at OAG.
