Hello everyone,

I would like to track commercial and private flights using airtable. Ideally a flight number or tail number will be entered into a column and in two other columns the flights status and ETA will be displayed.

So far there doesn't seem to be any native extensions and I have been investigate third party APIs and have yet to find a suitable match. Any recommendations or suggestions?

Thank you

If you have familiarity with using APIs, you can integrate any custom API with Airtable by using scripting, DataFetcher, or Make’s HTTP module. Make has a bit of a learning curve, so I’ve created some basic navigation tips here.

Alternatively, if you have a budget for your project and you’d like to hire an expert Airtable consultant to help you create this, I have extensive experience integrating custom APIs with Airtable. Please feel free to contact me through my website:

Have you tried using Flightradar24's API? They offer real-time flight tracking data for commercial and private flights around the world.

Tracking flights can be a hassle, but with the right tools, it can be a breeze. Have you tried using FlightAware's API? It's a third-party service that provides flight tracking information, including status and ETA. You can integrate FlightAware's API with Airtable using their REST API interface. This will allow you to enter a flight number or tail number into a column, and have the flight status and ETA automatically displayed in two other columns. And if you're looking to book a flight, be sure to check out for cheap business class flights. They offer great deals on luxury travel, so you can fly in style without breaking the bank.
