Release Date: August 12, 2019
Umapped’s Flight reminders will now be powered by OAG (Official Aviation Guide) instead of FlightStats, meaning earlier flight notification service for consultants and travellers.
Flight notifications from OAG will only send for flight reminders, delays, changes, and cancellations.
With the OAG integration, all changes are internal (backend-related), and thus for existing users, the notifications and overall look will not change between the transition from FlightStats to OAG.
With OAG, flight reminders will now be displayed 24 hours before the scheduled departure, whereas with FlightStats flight reminders only displayed 6 hours prior to departure.
OAG will not capture or send alerts for delays of 15 minutes or less.
Additionally, OAG will not send any flight reminder if the Trip is published within 24 hours of departure.
