Flight Data Access Includes:

  • Flight Tracker API: Display flight tracking data and all their relevant information on applications, websites or other platforms.
  • Airport Schedules 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.
  • Historical Schedules API: The API provides flight schedule and airport timetable data based on a historical date or date range, and updates daily. Cancellations and delays are included.
  • Future Schedules API: The API returns flight information and airport schedule data based on a future date. It can be used to select flights after entering departure/arrival airports and dates when integrated.
  • Routes API: The Airline Routes API provides the data about the routes between all the airports an airline operates on.

  • Nearby 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.
  • Autocomplete API: This API helps to locate airports based on partial input. For example if you type Ams, it will come up with Amsterdam, Schiphol and other airports which include “ams” as part of their name or coding.
  • Satellite Tracker API: This API provides real-time position, speed, ID, TLE data among other details for objects orbiting around the Earth such as ISS, SpaceX and Virgin satellites, and more.

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 tracker API and airport schedules API. It’s a REST API so depending on the development language you use, you can find the suitable method to develop it.

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]
