FlightInfo API Introduction

The SITA FlightInfo API is a REST based service which provides information and status for flights from airports around the world. The service includes subscription based notifications for status changes to a particular flight.

Registration and API Signup

To access the APIs, you will need to be issued with an API key. These values are passed in as a HTTP header (or optionally query parameter).

Note: Currently, access to the service is on an invite only basis. Please contact the FlightInFo API Product Manager, Rajesh Chilukuri for further details.

API Key Usage

The API authentication key will be passed in an HTTP header as follows:

  • name of header: X-apiKey
  • value of header: The api key as generated for the application
