SITA's 2D Boarding Pass API creates and delivers an IATA and TSA standard compliant 2D boarding pass image based on information and boarding pass delivery preferences provided by the airlines departure control/check-in application. Delivery options include email, SMS, Apple PassBook (PassKit compatible) or the board code image can be displayed on web, mobile web or pushed for used in Smartphone apps.
Interested developers can request an API key and check out and test the API from www.developer.aero. Full set of documentation available.
SITA, the leading IT provider to the air transport industry, invited airlines and developers to join them in launching an API program, including the SITA Boarding Pass API, to increase efficiency and innovation in air transport. SITA's research technology team, SITA Lab, launched developer.aero last week in hopes "to enable airlines, airports and other industry players to extend existing IT processes by harnessing the application developer community to provide new apps for the industry and world travelers."
