Phil Callow, CEO of OAG, commented: “Over the last few years we have strengthened OAG by building the world’s most comprehensive flight status database, expanding our suite of analytical tools and launching a unique real-time flight schedule product.

“Vitruvian has a deep understanding of the travel market and a strong growth orientation. I am excited about the next phase of OAG’s growth and look forward to working with the Vitruvian Partners team to build on our momentum,” he added.
