Industry case study
Socializing APIs in the airline industry
To increase bookings, airlines are motivated to push flight information out to travel-related third-parties. With a company-branded developer portal created through IBM API Connect, airlines can allow travel app developers to easily grab flight data and share it.
We’ve created an ecosystem in which the APIs serve multiple verticals, allowing our partners to do what they’re really good at and us to focus on what we’re good at.
