Saudi Airlines Cargo inks OAG contract

Riyadh, April 2, 2011

Saudi Airlines Cargo, a leading cargo carrier based in Saudi Arabia, has signed a contract to become the ‘Launch Customer’ of OAG Cargo’s new Route Mapper tool.

”The new application will help the airline’s cargo customers perform a series of essential daily business tasks, such as searching online for Saudi Airlines Cargo flights and flight-related information,” said Shihab Al-Amoudi, Saudi Airlines Cargo head of Global Communications and Advertising Department.

“Customers can easily identify non-stop, connecting flights using a visual map of cities served by the airline, as well as view timetables of available flights from a chosen city for all routes served by the company,” said Al-Amoudi, who is also company spokesperson.

Phase 1 of the roll-out will see the generic Route Mapper product implemented from April 1. This will incorporate use of Arabic language, customized branding, future schedules and full integration into its website.

Al-Amoudi said discussions were already under way for future phases of development with OAG, which is expected to develop more cargo features and benefits to enhance the Route Mapper product.

Bart-Jan Haasbeek, VP Sales of OAG Cargo, signed the contract during the Air Cargo Africa event in Nairobi with Peter Scholten, VP Commercial of Saudi Airlines Cargo.

“We are proud to have such a prestigious Launch Customer such as Saudi Airlines Cargo for Route Mapper,” Haasbeek said.

Saudi Airlines Cargo will see immediate business benefits, he said, adding that OAG shares the excitement about the next stage of development of the product.

“The signing of the contract is the beginning of a long and successful business partnership with a strong global carrier,” Haasbeek said.
