Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are increasingly being used to improve airline and airport operations. The Historical Flight Status API provides historical flight information for all flights for the previous 12 months. It is ideal for developers and data sciencists who want to analyze patterns or behaviour of carriers, flights and routes. This information is sourced from various real-time systems and databases across the globe and is stored on SITA’s cloud to support any research or analysis.
Information includes arriving airport, departure airport, scheduled/actual time, airport Code, terminal, claim, gate, aircraft, marketingCarriers/operatingCarrier, airline, flightNumber, tailNumber.
This API answers the below questions:
- What was the trend or behaviour of a specific flight for past 12 months?
- Is there a pattern of flight delays between two airports?
- Can help in analyzing the seasonality of flights.
