Kiwi.com and Airsavvi join forces to enhance air travel experience

The partnership provides real-time notifications of flight status changes for travelers

Kiwi.com, a leading online travel-tech company, has announced its partnership with Airsavvi — a global leader of travel data intelligence. The new partnership provides real-time notifications of flight status changes for travelers who booked their travels with Kiwi.com.

By integrating Airsavvi’s flight status information, we are now able to push automatic notifications of any flight status changes. Travelers are notified about allocated check-in counter, departure gate, and estimated take-off and landing times. 

This partnership brings Kiwi.com one step closer to becoming the Virtual Global Supercarrier. Supported by Airsavvi’s data, we can provide our customers with up-to-date information and contribute to their smooth travel experience. 

Airsavvi supplies Kiwi.com with the most comprehensive and up-to-date flight database

Airsavvi’s most comprehensive and up-to-date flight database provides Kiwi.com with flight schedules, live flight status, and contextual data, such as airport and aircraft information related to over 94 percent of global commercial flights. 

Using Airsavvi’s data, we can monitor aircraft movements in flight, and display its 3D track and live status in real time. Airsavvi is also able to control the time difference between the estimated time of arrival (ETA) and the actual time of arrival (ATA) within three minutes for 90 percent of flights landing within 30 minutes.
