Import flights from TripIt


It’s been a long time coming, but I am tickled pink to announce the release of a long-awaited feature: integration of with online trip planning tool extraordinaire, which lets you create travel itineraries for flights, hotels and more automatically simply by forwarding them your reservation emails.  Here’s how it works:

  1. Log in to your OpenFlights account and select Import.
  2. In the Import dialog, choose the newly minted Import from TripIt up top.
  3. The first time only, you’ll be requested to authorize read-only access to TripIt.

You’ll then be presented with a list of your Tripit itineraries, newest first, with a separate tab for future flights.  Flights already in your OpenFlights record (same date, airports and direction) are automatically filtered out, and you can then choose Import for single flights or Import All for an entire trip.  Once done, click Close, and your newly imported flights will now be on your map.

As this is a new feature, bug reports, feedback and suggestions for improvement are very welcome.  And a big shout out to Andrew Chen for contributing virtually all the code for this!

Tripping it,

  2. This is awesome, making flight archiving a bliss. I had a few flights I ment to add but was too lazy. This solves it 🙂 Thanks


  3. Every time I try to import my flights via TripIt, I get the error message “Could not connect to TripIt. Please try again later.” Does anybody know why this happens? I’d really like to try importing my flights, but it’s been days and no luck.

  4. This works for me just now, but it only allows one trip at a time. Is there no option to import all trips held?


  5. doesn’t seem to work at the moment, is it just a temporary glitch?
