Future Airport Schedules API

The Future Airport Schedules API provides the timetable details of airports worldwide, on a given date in the future. Let’s say you want to build a website, app, tool, etc. and you want your customers to be able to choose a travel date, and a departure and arrival point, and view flights off the list and pick the flight that suits them. In order to do that, you need a credible API that returns which flight information from point A to B, flight-by-flight. Needless to say, APIs can save you an insane amount of money and time while offering more functionality compared to a standard database that you build and maintain yourself. This is where our Future Airport Schedules API come in. The data is aggregated from multiple sources such as our trusted data partners in the sector as well as airlines and official sources directly when available.

When integrated, the Future Airport Schedules API will return all details you may want to offer to your customers. Each flight in the response includes:

  • Airport: Departure and arrival airports’ IATA codes
  • Weekday: The day of the week of the flight, "1" being Monday
  • Terminal and gate: The most common terminal and the gate number of the flight
  • Flight times: Scheduled departure and arrival times of the flight
  • Aircraft details: Model code and text form of the model
  • Airline details: Name, IATA and ICAO codes
  • Flight information: Solo flight number and flight number with IATA and ICAO codes separately

Flight Planning API

The Flight Planning API returns detailed flight information data based on future airport schedules. It is particularly useful for travel agencies that provide worldwide flight planning services. It has a staggering coverage for over 250 countries and +10000 airports worldwide. The well-built structure of the Flight Planning API allows making a great number of API calls per minute without delays and slowdowns, making the API a reliable option for all next level travel websites and apps with different levels of visitor traffic. No matter if you are building one anew or integrating the API to an already functioning website or app, the process is going to be smooth.

What options can you offer to your clients when you integrate the Flight Planning API:

  • They can select a date or a date range for their travels
  • They can either choose a specific departure and arrival airport or choose only the departure or the arrival. You can promote this feature as an “adventurous mode” for your clients, much like the “Can’t decide where?” feature of Skyscanner which is pretty popular among travelers.
  • They can then view scheduled flight times, airline names and code, the flight number, the most used gates and terminals for that flight, and aircraft model.
