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.

Next stage

Following the acquisition, Vitruvian Partners will support OAG to invest in new products and services, enabling the firm to grow further.
