Flight Information and Booking APIs
APIs in the travel tech industry is the key enabler of connectivity. Using various APIs, providers can source data and support service booking for all travel stages, from flights to tours and attractions. We’ve broadly discussed key travel industry APIs in our article. This time, we decided to give a more focused overview of the APIs and their providers in the flight search and booking.
Note: Although most of the data types depicted in the infographic can be sourced directly from airlines, we didn’t include them and focused on key players that cover multiple airlines via a single interface. These are the three main GDSs (Sabre, Travelport, Amadeus), a major OTA (Expedia), a major metasearch (Skyscanner), and tech providers (SITA, Flightstats, and FlightRadar24).
