A useful little utility for a passenger app is to be able to view a map showing the progress of your flight or a family member’s flight on its route across the globe.
Our FlightFollower API simply retrieves a map image in GIF format to show you the progress of a flight by just using departure/arrival airports and a flight number and airline code in the request.

Rajesh Chilukuri is the Product Manager for the API who will be happy to help you with any queries.
