OAG Releases Prototype for Pandemic Disease Planning and Management
Date:9/7/2009

CHICAGO, September 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- OAG, the leading provider of global airline data and intelligence, has developed a prototype to assist health organizations and government agencies in preparing their strategies to combat the spread of pandemic diseases, including the H1N1 virus and other flu strains.

The tool will allow responsible government departments and health organizations to visualize and model in elapsed time:

    - Which carriers should be alerted at down-line connection points
    - Which carriers may already be impacted
    - How many (maximum) passengers could be exposed to a disease as
      time passes

John Weber, Senior Vice President, OAG Aviation, said: "The world is now truly a global village where it is possible to reach almost any other point on the planet by air within just one day. Flu bugs don't buy their own tickets; they travel with passengers at the same speed as aircraft. Understanding the logical path of travellers over a global network of connecting flights could be a major milestone in helping to minimize the escalation of any new epidemic."

Weber continued, "We have been working on this prototype since the first outbreak of the H1N1 virus and are now in a position to engage more fully with organizations to help them with their preparedness plans. Our initial discussions with government departments have confirmed our view that there is real value in using our data to predict where a virus may travel over the commercial air lanes. What we bring to the party is the reliability of our global schedules data, our experience with data integration and applications, and a very useful
