API - Application Programming Interface
WHAT'S AN API?
API stands for "Application Programming Interface" and enables a developper to access data of AVIATION-FUEL-PRICES.COM, for use in their application or service. The API, as the name says, provides an interface for data exchange, that allows communication between diffenren entities, which may be programmed in totally different languages.
The types of services the developper provides, could for example be computer or smart phone applications, as well as websites.
WHY AN API?
The data collected by AVIATION-FUEL-PRICES.COM bases to a large extent on input provided by users.
We believe that there are other awesome services for pilots out there that may even enhance their user experience
with the implementation of our data. And that's why we share our data for free under a Creative Commons license.
When all EFB apps and flight planning services collect fuel price data and only provide them to their own users,
there will never be a nearly complete picture available anywhere. It is, therefore, desirable to centralice the data
collection and make it accessable to everyone, who has a legitimate interest. That way other developers can focus more
on the quality of their services, instead of also putting resources into collecting fuel prices.
HOW IT WORKS
If you are a developper and would like to use our API, you'll need to create a developper account with us. For that, please
