3. Using the API to retrieve flight prices

 

Browse Routes

Use Browse Routes to retrieve a list of destinations and prices. You can use 'anywhere' to get a list of countries, or you can specify a country or a city (using its Skyscanner code e.g. CDG for Paris Charles-de-Gaulle airport or LOND for London).

Browse Dates

Use Browse Dates to retrieve the cheapest prices to your selected destination (city or airport) for a given month (e.g. 2017-12) or for the next 12 months (anytime).

If you want the response to be formatted in a way that is easy to display as a calendar you can use Browse Grid.

Browse Quotes

Use Browse Quotes if you don't need the Routes or Dates built for you and just need the individual quotes.

http://partners.api.skyscanner.net/apiservices/browsequotes/v1.0/GB/GBP/en-GB/US/CDG/EDI/2017-12-12/2017-12-20?apiKey=<your_api_key>
