Sources and Process

Historical Schedules data consists of the same quality data provided via our real-time Schedules API, only for schedules of a certain date or date range in the past. The data shows the latest information received of a flight, so it is particularly useful to determine cancellations and delays. The historical data continues to grow each day, making the Historical Airport Schedules API perfect to create statistics that can update every day.

Access to the Historical Flight Schedules API – Fast, Complete and Detailed Historical Timetable Data

Powering Aviation Development with Historical Schedules API

As the automation of the aviation and passenger services increase, developers now need reliable airport schedule data more than ever. That is exactly why we expanded our services from real-time data to include historical schedules data. The client-favorite real-time Schedules API is now available for historical schedules as well. The historical API responses include every detail the real-time data offers.


It is possible to make queries based on a date or a date range that can go up to 30 days via a single API call. Both time and cost efficient to build the perfect tool.


A typical response includes scheduled, estimated and actual times for both the flight itself and the runway. A separate column for codeshared flights aims to prevent mistaking the data of flights that share the same flight number but operated by different airlines. Terminal and baggage information is a huge plus for features that address to passengers especially.


Another use field of the historical airport schedule data is to create statistics for academic and commercial projects. The Historical Airport Schdeules API data helps you determine the airway traffic of a certain airport, between two airports or even between certain countries or regions around the world. This is particularly useful to determine the passenger behaviour during certain periods of time such as the start of the coronavirus pandemic.


Developers of any field will find our APIs very useful and complete, with friendly client services you can contact anytime. Grow your business with our reliable and cost-friendly data!
