We participated, learnt, and got our messages out there. What were those messages?


First, airline distribution is going through a major transformation and will be the next great API ecosystem.


Second, this transformation is being driven by new, fast-paced travel tech companies, not the established technical intermediaries;


And finally, the airline distribution market will open up and expand (way) beyond its current boundaries, with a new breed of online players capturing part of the market, and possibly even expanding it.

Yes, we’re going to the Phocuswright Conference next week. And will even pitch flyiin at their Innovation Summit competition taking place on the first day, together with another 24 travel startups.


Why are we doing this? Very simple. Now that we have released a brand new platform and Air Travel API, we’re ready to tell the industry about it, show our platform, and share the exciting stuff we are currently and will be working on.


Our CTO Dániel and our CEO Stéphane will be there as of Monday. So, if you want to catch up, have a chat or see our platform live, please get in touch.


Send us an email at contact@flyiin.com or text us at +49 1575 891 94 82. We'd love to meet.

This week marks another critical milestone for our company. After months of work, we released a completely new version of our Airline DirectConnect Platform, which reflects the experience we gained with NDC (and non-NDC) airline APIs during the past three 3 years.


What does make this new version so special?


When we embarked on this major platform overhaul, our objective was to create a unified, intuitive and user-friendly flow that would not require knowledge of the (many) complexities inherent to airline distribution - beyond those addressed by our API documentation.


The way we have gone about it was to reduce the multiple low-level interactions often required by airline APIs to complete the purchase of a flight, those interactions and the number of them varying greatly between one airline and another.


How does this impact our Air Travel API?


The result of this work is a new Air Travel API that relies on three primary schemas:


/Search: start a flight and explore the offers returned by airlines

/Basket: create a basket with the selected offer, add services and insert payment information

/Order: purchase the requested flight (including additional services) and receive booking and ticketing confirmation


New airline integrations


As part of this new release, we have integrated many new airlines into our Airline DirectConnect Platform. As of today, the following airlines are available for sale via our Air Travel API:
