OUR PROCESS

The majority of flight status data we handle comes direct from airlines. However, for those airlines who are not sending us data directly we also get feeds directly from airports and government bodies. The data is then put through a variety of stringent quality checks. 

Our-Ecosystem

The quality control process resolves issues combined with our detailed understanding of status complexities to ensure airlines have the most accurate
real-time flight status out in the marketplace.
