Horizon® Web Services | SITA

 

Overview

Horizon Web Services is an interface that gives you direct access to data on the Horizon Reservations and Departure Control Systems. It provides uniquely open and flexible access to data, through a connection with the highest level of performance and security.

Web Services benefits from SITA’s knowledge of industry standard message formats and protocols that significantly reduce your application development time, maintenance costs and reliance on proprietary messages.

Web Services supports messaging for air availability, flight information, reservations (create/modify and cancel), customer profile, fares, ticketing, electronic miscellaneous documents and departure control services.

Information on Web Services is available online at www.developer.aero.
