Q2 2023 Release Notes - Flight Info API

New Data Availability

UTC and Local Time Points

The Flight Info API has been upgraded by introducing UTC data points for scheduled departure and arrival times and dates.

This update eliminates the need for clients to convert local times to UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). We have introduced new UTC fields that provide time data in the universally accepted standard, saving you time and effort in automated or manual conversions.

Schedule Instance Key and Status Key

Two additional fields, ScheduleInstanceKey, and StatusKey, were introduced to ease data integration across multiple Flight Info API products (these fields are also available in Direct and Alerts products).

Important notes:

  • The new data points are exclusively available in the newly introduced v2 version of the Flight Info API. The Flight Info API also includes other enhancements to improve the user experience. The step-by-step guide on how to switch from v1 to v2 can be found here.
