Search by departure or arrival date range (Jan 7, 2022)

Search by departure or arrival date range is now available in the Flight Info API. To use this feature, enter two dates separated with a slash, e.g., DepartureDate=2022-01-04/2022-01-11.

Instance view release of OAG's Flight Info Alerts (Nov 29, 2021)

In this release, Flight Info Alerts API has moved from showing schedules in effective periods to showing them at the flight instance level. This provides a more granular view of flight schedules, whereby schedules are shown at the individual flight level. This will mean an increased volume of change events as changes are recorded for each individual flight instead of the effective period. 

Flight Info Alerts enables customers to access near real-time change events in the full spectrum of schedules instance data that OAG holds without needing an API lookup. Flight Info Alerts allows users to configure which schedule changes they are interested in seeing at any combination of Date, Route, Airline and Flight Number Range.

Next iteration of the Flight Info API (Nov 29, 2021)

The latest release of the Flight Info API is now available. Here users can look up flight information and see both schedules and status data, plus optional additional datasets such as predicted seats and actual seats, returned in the same response, displayed at the flight instance level. Additionally, users are able to retrieve more granular flight status output which shows all the status changes that happened for the returned flight.

The original version of the Flight Info API is now accessible as the Schedules API in the Developer Portal (API URL and schema remain unchanged).

Search by multiple airports (May 4, 2021)

Search by multiple airports is now available in the Flight Info and Flight Changes APIs. To use this feature, enter comma-separated IATA airport codes in the DepartureAirport or ArrivalAirport parameters, e.g., DepartureAirport=LHR,LCY,LGW.

On-Time Performance and other schedule data fields (Apr 21, 2021)

This release delivers a wide range of new schedule data fields such as on-time performance, in-flight services, automated check-in, electronic ticketing, secure flight information, and government approval. The on-time performance fields present the percentage of arrivals that were on-time, late, and cancelled.
