Air France-KLM is launching its new Open Data portal directly available at https://developer.airfranceklm.com/. Developers and start-ups will have easy, global access to Air France and KLM operational data such as:
- flight times;
- flight numbers and routes;
- transport conditions;
The constantly evolving Air France-KLM Open Data portal will offer access to flight status data by the end of 2017.
Tested by more than 350 developers, the new portal gives users access to a support team to develop their API* consumption. In addition, the site interface has been completely redesigned and the browsing functionality made more intuitive.
Guido Van Til, VP Digital Strategy at Air France-KLM, confirms the Group’s intentions: “We aim to improve our customers’ travel experience. With this open environment we invite the worldwide developer community to develop new innovative digital solutions to support that vision. This new portal for developers is part of the Group’s digital strategy and intends to be a real innovation approach”
