Aviation Edge API for Developers

Our database is divided between static and dynamic data. Static data is that what does not frequently change but due to the massive size of our database, there are constant updates. Think about airport and airline information. The dynamic data is that what changes more frequently or uses our software to turn it into useful tools. Think about flight tracking and airport timetables.

It’s a REST API so depending on the development language you use, you can find the suitable method to develop it. A way to try the API is by getting your free API key and then testing it on our testing page.

You can find the examples of each endpoint below. The layout of the GET requests are as follows:

For an entire dataset, when available:

				
					https://aviation-edge.com/v2/public/[ENDPOINT]?key=[API KEY]
				
			

For specific string value information:

				
					https://aviation-edge.com/v2/public/[ENDPOINT]?key=[API KEY]&[STRING]=[VALUE]
				
			

Dynamic Data

Flight Tracker API

Get all global flight information in 1 API call or track individual flights. You can also call all flights based on a single Airline or base it on the departure or arrival Airport.  

Schedules API

Get airport arrival and departure schedules of flights information including delay and cancellations. Updated constantly.

Translations

Using the translations function in the API with &lang= will slow down the API calls when it involves a lot of translations of airports, cities and countries. Therefor it is recommended to use it in combination with other filters to reduce the amount of data you receive in the response.
