Flight Tracker API

Clients can connect to the flight tracker 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 tracker 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.

 

Airport 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.

 

Data included in the Flight Tracker API

  • Status of the flight:¬†active, scheduled, landed, cancelled, incident, diverted, redirected.
  • Location:¬†departure/arrival: Airport IATA code, ICAO code, Terminal, Gate.
  • Take-off information:¬†delay, the scheduled, estimated and actual time on runway and that of departure/arrival.
  • Airline:¬†Name, IATA code and ICAO code.
  • Flight:¬†Number of Flight, IATA prefix with flight number and ICAO prefix with flight number.

Airline Routes API

The Airline Routes API provides the data about the routes between all the airports an airline operates on. The service collects the active routes of each individual airline and provides this as one database through the API key which you can obtain on this platform. 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.

Data included in Airline Routes API

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.

Sources and process

The Nearby airports and cities API is founded on our airports and cities database. These are constantly expanding with more data as they become available to us through new data partnerships and data sharing.

 

Data included in Nearby airports and cities API

  • Location type:¬†Airport, railway, bus station, heliport, seaport, etc.
  • Location data:¬†IATA code, ICAO code, Name, city and country code related to location, name of country that the location is in.

Historical Schedules API

The API provides detailed data for airport schedules and timetables of a historical date. The data includes many useful details like cancellations and delays, making the API a perfect choice for especially flight claim businesses. Clients may pull accurate data via the API based on a specific date or a date range in the past. The range may be a maximum of 30 days. For a longer date range, it is possible to make multiple API calls.

Sources and process

The data structure is the same as our real-time Schedules API which makes it extra convenient for our clients who work with both real-time and historical data. Several filters are enabled for clients who would like to focus on a certain type of flight status such as cancelled and delayed, or a certain date range to measure the air traffic of an airport.

 

Data included in the Historical Schedules API

  • Status of the flight:¬†landed, cancelled, delayed, unkknown.

Future Schedules API

The API provides detailed data for airport schedules and timetables of a future date based on real-time and historical data. A standard API response includes useful details such as the originally scheduled arrival and departure time, gate, terminal, as well as airline, aircraft and flight number details. The API is particularly useful for travel agencies and to build platforms, apps, websites etc. in which your clients can choose a flight by entering a date in the future and view its details.

 

Sources and process

The response for each flight has a similar structure to our real-time and historical Schedules APIs. When combined, the 3 APIs give you complete schedule data of airports worldwide, either be in the past, present and the future, allowing seeing changes in the traffic over time. There are multiple filters to get the exact flights you are looking for out of a full API response, i.e. flights of a certain airline, flights that are to arrive or depart to a certain airport, or individual flights by their flight numbers.

  • Aircraft details:¬†Model code and text
  • Airline details:¬†Name, IATA and ICAO codes
  • Flight information:¬†Flight number as well as flight IATA and ICAO codes

Aviation 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 ‚Äúams‚ÄĚ as part of their name or coding. This is a fitting addition to the other API services that we offer on aviation. Allowing clients to easily integrate a search window for their customers. The autocomplete is based on our internal databases of airports, cities and others. These are maintained up to date manually and through dedicated software.

 

Sources and process

The sources of the data are aviation authorities, airports directly and our partners in aviation data. The aviation autocomplete API is based on the databases on airports and other related segments. They are updated periodically saving time from the clients to maintain these manually.

Data included in the Future Schedules API

  • Location type:¬†City, airport, railway, bus station, heliport, seaport, etc.
  • Location data:¬†IATA code, ICAO code, names, city code, country.
  • Location coordinates:¬†Latitude, longitude, timezone.

Satellite Tracker API

The API grants access to detailed data on satellites orbiting around the Earth. The location values are maintained in our servers, aggregated here and provided in a live manner. Satellites can be tracked via the NORAD codes for an easier tracking/filtering experience. Developers can shape the raw data into their designated project without having to rely on multiple different sources.

 

Sources and process

The reliable data is provided through official sources as well as data partners on a global scale. The data is then aggregated and maintained in our servers before displayed to our clients through the Satellite Tracker API. The data is live and constantly updated.

Airlines database

A complete database of all the airlines in the world. Used often in combination with other API solutions such as the flight tracker, airline schedules and routes. The database is a foundation for a wide range of software applications. There are two ways to obtain the airline database, either by downloading it in excel, csv or sql format or by connecting to the API service which Aviation Edge provides. When you download the database individually or in combination with other databases, you will receive important updates automatically by mail and you can also access your account at any time to download the database. The other option through API will allow you to develop a software to automatically check for updates.

Sources and process

The airline database is a foundation for several other features we have. The data is gathered from aviation authorities as well as airlines directly and our partners in aviation data. We maintain the database through dedicated software and manual checks.

Data included in Airlines database download
