The Airports API delivers important details about an airport including IATA/ICAO codes, location (lat/long), airport name, street address, elevation, UTC time zone offset and more. This data can be delivered as an XML or JSON response in English or Simplified Chinese.The Airports API also lets you determine which airports are near a specified location (lat/long) within a specified radius. This is very useful for location-based applications (smart phones, tablets, and in-dash navigation systems) and answers the question:
- What are all the active airports in the world?
- What are the details for the Airport with this code?
