Your central hub for aviation data

What do we do

Gathering and updating data in the aviation industry through our database and API.

We collect data from hundreds of different sources. Official authorities as well as other industry partners such as airlines and airports. This data we compile into our database. We developed a combined system of software as well as manual checks to guarantee our data is always up to date. That way we can deliver accurate data to our clients through our API. Aside from this, we offer complete support all the way during and after the implementation process.

Who this is for

Anyone whose business deals with aviation or the travel industry for whom it is of utmost importance that their data is accurate and complete.

Our clients are booking agencies, destination marketers, tour operators, airlines and airports, corporate booking platforms, Cargo Transporters, tracking websites, insurance companies and countless more.

Flight Tracker API

Clients can connect to the flight tracking through the API key which gives direct access to all the live flight data. The flight tracker API allows clients to display within their applications or on their websites and other platforms, the actual tracking of flights including all their relevant information. This service is central to our aviation data and maintained constantly within our database. Since the data is live, the updates happen within short intervals of just a few minutes. Aviation Edge’s function is to gather and maintain the complete aviation data for our clients so that they can create the functional tools for their customers.

Sources and process

The data of the flight tracking API is collected through ADS-B systems as well as the use of flight schedules to anticipate the location and fill in the gaps where needed. We also receive data from our aviation partners and combine all this to the central system for our clients. 

Data included in the flight tracker API

  • Geography: Location information such as latitude, longitude, altitude and direction.
  • Speed: Vertical and horizontal speed of aircraft.
  • Departure and arrival: IATA codes and ICAO codes of the departure and arrival location.
  • Aircraft and flight: IATA and ICAO number of flight and registration number, ICAO code and ICAO24 code of aircraft.
  • Airline: IATA code and ICAO code of airline.
  • System information: Squawk, status and last updated.

Flight schedules and timetables API

The API service provides the flight schedules and timetables of all airports and airlines around the world and maintains this for the clients in a central database, always accessible with the personal API key. The airport and airline timetables and schedules API is one of Aviation Edge’s core features. Making it easy for developers to provide their customers with actual airport departure and arrival times through API on their applications or websites. Our function is to gather and maintain the aviation data and format this into workable flight schedules and airport timetables for the clients so that they can focus on their core business of providing this information to their customers.

Sources and process

The flight timetables and schedules come directly from the airports and airlines when available. Another source of data is through our partnerships with other data providers and aviation. The data is aggregated through dedicated software which connects us with our individual partners.

At any time you can connect to the actual flight routes around the world with your API key. Common use of the air routes API is to develop software in the aviation industry. While Aviation Edge’s focus remains on the collection and maintaining of aviation data, the clients are care-free to develop countless applications and platforms upon it.

Sources and process

The flight routes data is provided by aviation authorities, individual airline companies and through our partners within the aviation industry. The data is constantly made actual through our dedicated software, developed for each airline company and through additional manual control when required.

Nearby airports and cities API

The API service to find airports and cities nearby a certain location is developed based on the databases about airports and cities which Aviation Edge maintains. Using the latitude and longitude data about the airports and cities, the nearby API can identify within a set range, which airports and cities are nearby. The API then identify the location based on the coordinates alongside additional useful data for the aviation and travel industry about these specific airports and cities. It is also made possible to our clients to develop their own software based on our static databases of airports and cities, however connecting through our Nearby service of airports and cities is made very easy with the API system.
