  1. I would like to have the lines connecting to different destinations in different colours or line breaks. Is this possible? Kindly advise. Thanks and best regards.


  2. Hi,
    I am trying to link the various data files together using the ID fields. I find they do not index correctly.
    For example:
    in routes :
    Airline AirlineIdx SourceAirport SourceAirportIdx DestinationAirport DestinationAirportIdx 2L 2750 BRS 490 ZRH 1678
    in airlines :
    AirlineIdx AirlineName AirlineCode FlightCode HostCountry
    2750 Heritiage Flight (Valley Air Services) SSH SNOWSHOE United States
    From the website, I figured that 2L is the code for Helvetic Airlines. When I check routes for 2L, the map shows no routes.
    So my questions are:
    (1) why do the Airlines ID fields not index correctly? or am I missing something?
    (2) why is there a difference between what I see on the website and what I see in the routes field?



  3. Any chance we might see an iOS App to add flights quickly on the go?


  4. Great web; but I write in order to report that there’s a non included flight, from TGU (Tegucigalpa) to Managua – Nicaragua, with La Costeña airlines (everyday).

    Best regards,



  5. Hi, I have seen the data files and you have done a superb job. Now I have a question. I want to create a mobile app from where user can search for airports and see routes on map. I have downloaded the file. Can I use it in my app free of charge? Do I have to mention in app that I am using data from your site? I have read the license page but did not got it. Can you please help?


  6. Thanks for making this wonderful service!
    I record my flight, share it with my friends and enjoy it.

    But sometimes the airline information seems to be wrong.
    If I want to report this, where can I contact you?


  7. I want to add a flight from the airport Nice (NCE), but it is impossible. What’s the problem? Please correct!


  8. Hi,

    Do you have any plans to include the flight number on each route? This would be useful to allow an open source alternative to some of the commercial flight number lookup facilities out there.



  9. I am new to the OpenFlights and, given that I am not at all IT/technology savvy, am experiencing an error message during importing.

    So, here is my case:
    – I am logged in to my account
    – I have some flights loaded and they display on the screen
    – I pressed to display the list of flights and the table shows on the bottom of the screen

    I press the CVS icon and my log downloads to my laptop. I save it as a CVS file on my laptop.

    I want to modify the list and upload it back to my account – i.e. add few flights ( in respective columns: date, from, to and flight number ) and then I save it back to my laptop

    when I try to upload that cvs file back to my account it gives me an error – failure to upload

    what am I doing wrong ?? – please help



    • This was a permissions issue on the new server that should be fixed now, please try again!


      • Hi jpatokal – thank you

        I tried and now I get this error

        OpenFlights: Import
        Upload successful. Parsing…
        Tmpfile phpZGLOSC
        Sorry, the file /var/www/openflights/import/phpZGLOSC does not appear contain FlightMemory FlightData.


      • You need to select “OpenFlights CSV” in the Import window before you upload.
