Enthusiast-driven aviation and flight data API for a small travel or aviation application.
This API helps to query rooms, price, facilities, policities, etc information from many hotels around the world to create a travelling site/application such as hotels.com
Fastest and most complete database of airport codes and data, including address, phone number, website and more.
Use Great Circle Mapper to calculate the air distance and flight time between all airports worldwide.
The travel industry runs on APIs. Whether booking a flight, renting a car, or researching hotels at holiday destinations, an API works in the background connecting you to the information. Other APIs in the travel industry can provide statistics on an airport’s on-time percentages, show what weather is like on the route, and much more.
Travel APIs connect travel company databases to third-party websites and applications. These APIs make data such as flight information, hotel bookings, car rentals, and other necessary travel information accessible for developers to build resources for end-users.
When a person utilizes a website or application to plan their trip itinerary and input their travel requirements, an API sends these as ‘requests’ to the endpoint database. Then, through a secure connection, the data is fetched and returned to the user in an easy-to-understand interface of the third-party app.
Many times, these APIs and applications also allow for bookings to be bought directly through the interface.
Anyone who has traveled in the past decade that has researched or purchased their bookings online has benefited from a travel industry API.
Airlines, hotel chains, car rentals, destination resorts, and the like all benefit through APIs. However, even a hobby blogger that posts about local attractions can use these APIs and increase revenue through affiliate sale agreements with companies.
Not so long ago, traveling meant a lot of planning and manual research, like calling hotels and airlines for pricing and dates available. Comparison shopping to find the best deals could take days. Today, through APIs connecting directly to databases, all of the information needed is at our fingertips and can be seen at a moment’s notice.
Building a full-scale travel research and booking API from the ground up would be unnecessarily labor-intensive. Instead, by utilizing existing APIs, developers save time and money when deploying applications. Likewise, time-tested APIs have already proven their worth with clean code that provides stable connections to the databases holding the information you require.
All Travel APIs are supported and made available in multiple developer programming languages and SDKs including:
