New Facelift for Developer.aero

December 15, 2014

With the growing demand for API (Application Programming Interfaces) solutions within the air transport and travel industries and the flourishing interest from developers in Developer.aero, SITA’s API portal, we decided that it was time to give the site a new facelift with a more contemporary look and feel in line with other developer web sites.

Developer.aero was launched in 2012 by SITA Lab as a development resource for the airline developer community and other interested parties. Developer.aero is now under the management of the SITA API Centre of Excellence within SCIP (SITA ATI Cloud/SaaS & ISV Portfolio).

APIs facilitate simple data query and retrieval services on airline and other host systems and are a key element in the development of new emerging mobile technologies and social media platforms. The growing interest in our APIs within the developer community is evident with site traffic significantly escalating on a daily basis and with our APIs being strongly featured in winning travel apps in recent hackathons.

The developer.aero portal has also recently become the single point of contact to use beacons deployed at airports around the world. SITA is providing a community service to manage beacon deployments and to share this information with third parties through the Common Use Beacon Registry API.
