Name of Airline Database

International Airlines Database for Developers

The name of the airline database with API was built by developers for developers in the aviation and travel industries. With the database’s complete and detailed content, we believe it can be a  good external data asset for any project in the sector. Approximately, there are around 5000 airlines in the world nowadays. Why not enjoy the advantages of having all data of these airlines at the palm of your hand?

In the past, almost every country had its own national airline. In these cases, the name of the airline resembled the name of the country or anything close to it. For instance, France had Air France, Switzerland had Swissair, Spain had Iberia. It was much easier to relate the airline to the country it belonged. With the drastic increase of the percentage of private companies in the sector, everything has changed. But the importance of the world list of airline names for flight tracking has remained the same.

Airline Names Database - Updates, Accuracy, Use Fields

The official airline names database is one of the most commonly used data sets on daily basis. It can be used for any project where airline information is displayed in any way. These could be flight tracking platforms, virtual maps, airline schedule tracking websites, market analysis just to name a few. The trick is to have a database at hand that keeps you updated with the changes. Even though it does not happen often, it is perfectly possible there is a change in the owner, name, and even the IATA code of airlines. Or some airlines may permanently cease operations, go bankrupt, and shut down in which case your website should show the same.  Our official airline names database for developers is updated and such changes and reflected in the data as a whole. The data is aggregated from our data partners as well as official sources when available. Our content serves to improve travel websites and similar applications. The data we offer in our complete list of airline names API is correct and accurate to power up your project with the right data. 


For the best experience and usage, you should try to combine this API with others that we offer. It would be useful to combine it with IATA codes of airline API. Also, international airline names API for flights tracking gives the best results when combined with airline routes API or even ID for Geonames API. In that way you can get all the necessary information for each flight you select. Combinations are different and they depend on what you want to get.
