Together we design the future of traveling
When you take a flight from Stuttgart Airport, you are the customer of many companies, e.g. airlines, trains, car rental company or parking operator. But for the airport, you are an anonymous person.
The great challenge of the airport is to get to know this anonymous passenger better in order to help him improve his travel process and experience at the airport.
We focus on three goals: We want to help the passenger to save time, e.g. by finding a free parking space or by orientation on the airport campus. We want to reduce the stress on the traveller by providing up-to-date data on his flight, information on waiting times or an easy way to contact the airport if he has any questions or problems. And last but not least we help the passenger to save money by offering discounts for shopping and gastronomy or current offers for rental cars or flights.
Airport Data Hub
The Airport Data Hub (ADH) is our central data source for airport and flight information for public use in digital media. In the ADH, uniform, harmonized and technically normalized information is formed from different airport systems and made available via a REST API (HTTP).
The ADH provides the following data:
- Real-time flight information (arrivals and departures) for today and tomorrow
(flight number, destination/origin airport, airline, planned and expected time, status, terminal, check-in, gate number, baggage carousel number, aircraft type, etc.)
- Real-time waiting times at security checkpoints
- Season flight plan
- Master data of the airlines
(logo, contact details, link to online checkin, etc.)
- Master data of the shops & gastronomy
(logo, contact details, terminal, opening hours, etc.)
- Real-time timetable data of the Stuttgart Airport bus terminal for today’s and tomorrow’s day
(destination, planned and expected time, status, line, bus stop, etc.)
