What is it?

The Flight Manifest API is used to generate manifest reports for various types of information. This API has can display, print, and/or email different manifests as well.

Why use it?

It's important for airline staff to understand the counts of passengers, and the counts of special type of passengers, on an aircraft. The Flight Manifest API retrieves this required information, using as few parameters in the request as possible.

How it works

Flight Manifest helps facilitate the display, printing, and emailing of manifest reports (for one or more manifest types) for a specific flight.

  • The response contains separate manifest reports for each of the manifest types requested.
  • If any or all of the manifest type fails during processing, the respective manifest block in the response will have an Error Block to indicate the error corresponding to the specific manifest.
  • You can select any or all the manifest types under manifestTypeList to get manifest data for all types in a single request.
  • Get Flight Details internally orchestrates multiple calls to the host to fetch the manifest data for each of the supported types and responds with a manifest data list for all types requested.
  • In the event of a flight incident, the flight in trouble (FIT) process allows the airline to restrict viewing of flight manifests. If the flight requested is in trouble, the service will return FLIGHT RESTRICTED.
