Technical FAQs on how to work with our APIs: Frequently Asked Questions

Schiphol’s APIs offer a wealth of data and possibilities. We are trying to help you work with them, wherever we can. In the frequently asked questions for developers below, you will find more information. Still looking for more information? Get in contact with us. We are happy to help. Or read our Business FAQs.

Please note that more in-depth technical questions are answered in the specific API documentation, that you’ll find after logging in.

1. How does it work and how do I start?

Here, in the Developer Center, you can open an account, which will give you access to the public Flight API. You can use this API (to a limited extent) to experience what you can do with our APIs. To get more extensive access, request an upgrade of your account. We will ask you some extra information and one of our account managers may contact you to discuss your needs.

2. Why don’t I see all APIs?

In the Developer Center, you see more APIs than you might see in your account. You may have a basic account with limited access to the APIs. Also, some of these APIs and services are still available in beta or not publicly available. To access the non-public APIs, you can contact us to request an account upgrade.

3. Where do I find more technical information about the APIs?

Once you have an account and are logged in, you will find the technical documentation of all APIs. Can’t find the information you are looking for? Then contact our API support team. Our developers are happy to help answer all your technical questions.

4. Will you offer more APIs and services in the future?

More and more APIs and services will become available in the coming months. We are also working on a number of SDKs and on our Github account. We keep our (potential) users and other interested parties, informed via e-mail. Interested too? Sign up for our newsletter.

5. Are there any limitations in using your APIs?

Yes, for our APIs we reduce the number of hits you can trigger by using different plans. We also throttle requests if needed. Every API has details about their pricing on their documentation page.

6. Do you have any SDKs?

Not yet, we're working hard to provide these as soon as possible!

7. Are you RESTful?

Yes, we're fully REST compliant.

8. Do you offer support?

Yes, we have (limited) support during office hours. Please contact us for more information.

9. I have a problem with one of the APIs, what to do?

Please check the documentation page of the specific API, to see if the common practices answer your questions. If not, please contact us.
