We invite you to go nuts with our API’s, have fun and earn some money in the process.
In a nutshell this is our ambition with this platform for developers who are ready for building new ideas. Of course we have some work in progress, but at least we started to open up our data! One of the first API’s (and many more to come) is the Flight Offer API. We specially developed this Flight Status API for the Dutch Open Hackathon.
Flight Offer API
Airlines don’t provide all too much inspiration on their websites. Flight search options are often only limited to selecting origin A and destination B one by one. This makes it rather time consuming to compare and find several destinations and flights that meet various, sometimes very specific needs (such as watching your favorite band or soccer team in Europe play during your holidays). User experience regarding flight search is not really inspiring or efficient for that manner. It’s often very limited and can be so much more fun!
Our Flight Offer API challenges you to develop the most original, inspiring and effective alternative search engine to help travellers find exactly that flight that meets their specific needs. Go crazy and combine virtual reality if you like to bring back to life the travel agency around the corner. Feel free, it’s up to you what you’ll make of it.
JSON is used for this REST API. Please check out the documentation on this portal.
So what’s in it for you besides the fun?
First of all you can make some money. For every booking that can be traced to your application you will earn a commission of €2,50. You can sign up for our affiliate program so we can track and trace your sales and pay you accordingly.
Second of all you’ll earn a spot in our App gallery on this portal. The best Apps will earn a spot on the innovation page on the Transavia innovation portal to help you generate traffic.
Besides this you can win promotion of your App via other owned media such as our weekly newsletter.
You have access to easy to use API’s. We offer you cloud storage (API BAAS), App performance analytics and App testing possibilities as well. You’ll have a team of experts ready for support. A branding kit with icons and pictures is available on this portal to improve your APP UX.
We are thinking about organizing some challenges that will be posted here occasionally where you can win prices like free office space or airline tickets. Let us know your thoughts.
We are only successful when you are successful!
