Kindly guide me where can I get a reliable and updated airport Master API. The airport API should have all the information about all the airports in the world and I also want to know how much do they charge for the API.

    $\begingroup$ I've voted to reopen this question. It's clear what the person is asking for, the fact that it's out of his price range doesn't mean the question can't help future visitors. $\endgroup$ – Steve V. Sep 6 '14 at 5:28

Location Identifiers & Airline Designators data files available with daily updates

The perfect solution to feeding your coding database. These files (more information in right hand column) are available as a 12 month subscription or a one-time web download. For the subscription, you will be granted access to the password protected extranet site upon purchase where you can retrieve the data files update daily.


  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the information RedGrittyBrick, but the price for the data is to high are there any other sites where i could get the data at a lower cost.Since we are a startup company we cant afford such high price. $\endgroup$ – Nivin Abraham Sep 5 '14 at 12:06
  • $\begingroup$ @NivinAbraham If you can't afford IATA, check out ourairports.org. Also see aviation.stackexchange.com/questions/2644/… $\endgroup$ – Danny Beckett Sep 6 '14 at 14:05
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks a lot Danny Bekett, the URL you provided was very helpful.The data are very accurate and the also it is up to date. $\endgroup$ – Nivin Abraham Sep 8 '14 at 5:42

Navigraph and Aerosoft provide relatively cheap subscription to regular AIRAC updates for the simulation community. The databases include all the airport information that is required for FMS (navigation).

In both cases, the databases are plain-text files which are rather trivial to parse without any special API. For example:

A,YMML,MELBOURNE INTL,-37.673333,144.843333,434,10000,11000,11900,0

IMS,YMML ILS/CAT III,109.700,0,1,195,-37.656667,144.833611,434,YM,0,0,11.5,0.0
IMW,YMML ILS/CAT I,109.300,0,0,195,-37.660000,144.810000,434,YM,0,0,0.0,0.0
