In an entrepreneurial journey like the one we have with BuscaVoo, it is very important to find partners that allow us to innovate and build value around our product and brand. And that's what we found in the partnership with Skyscanner, a very robust API solution capable of meeting all our development needs, as well as an attentive and highly professional team, supporting and helping BuscaVoo's growth in Brazil and Latin America.
Skyscanner's Flights API was beyond our expectations. It has helped us reach a big audience in a very short time by providing more travel agencies as well as cheaper prices compared to our competitors on the Swedish market. We are happy to be part of Skyscanner's partners and couldn't have wished for a better API partner.

Browse Cache or Live Pricing?

Browse Cache API

  • Provides an aggregated view of flights and price data for many origins or many destinations over many time frames, returning the cheapest quotes where available.

  • The prices returned are the cheapest price per day from our cache date.

  • Browse cache prices are stored and updated every time a user does a search. For each route and date combination we save the cheapest one-way and the cheapest stop-over prices.

  • Popular route and date combinations will be updated frequently, however, less popular route and date combinations will not.

  • You should choose the Browse Cache API if you want to provide a wide range of search with flexible dates or destinations in a more efficient way.

Live Pricing API

  • Retrieve up-to-date pricing information for a specific route on a specific departure and arrival date.

  • The API returns all relevant pricing information for the specific search, allowing for price comparison and selection.

  • The data returned from the Live Pricing API is the most accurate pricing information for this route and travel dates that Skyscanner can provide.

  • To ensure a fair and honest comparison we query our partners on demand when you call our API.

  • You should use the Live Pricing API if you want to provide a price comparison for a given route on specific dates.
