Sandbox (Certification environment)



  • To see the response structure and format
  • To experiment, develop code, and fix bugs
  • To use API updates and new APIs before a production release
  • To access newer or expanded lists of origin/destination pairs before they are available in Production


Note — Certification has fewer origin-destination pairs than Production.




  • To verify data quality. The Production environment may return response data that is more complete than Certification, such as more itineraries, because production data is extracted from more origin-destination pairs.
  • To conduct a complete beta test of your application
  • To certify your code
  • To place your application in Production
