Skyscanner Flight Search API Documentation

Connect to APIStarting with the most popular API, is Skyscanner.

Here’s the list of all the available Skyscanner API endpoints:

  • Browse Dates – Retrieve the cheapest dates for a given route from our cache.
  • Browse Quotes – Retrieve the cheapest quotes from our cache prices.
  • Browse Routes – Retrieve the cheapest routes from our cache prices. Similar to the Browse Quotes API but
    with the routes built for you from the individual quotes.

    poll the results are provided in the Location header of the response.
  • Currencies – Retrieve the currencies that we support.
  • List Places – Get a list of places that match a query string.
  • List markets – Retrieve the market countries that we support. Most suppliers (airlines, travel agents and
    car hire dealers) set their fares based on the market (or country of purchase). It is, therefore, necessary to specify the
    market country in every query.
  • Poll session results – Get itineraries from a created session
