Skytra’s global ticketing database is created by cross referencing and aggregating daily air travel ticket information from two of the world’s largest sources. One source provides ticket level transaction data, the other provides offered ticket level pricing data. The Skytra data scientist team developed a proprietary method to cross reference both data sets in order price around 83% of all air travel tickets sold around the worldwide, every single day of the year.
IATA DDS is a large and complex dataset. For example in 2019 DDS provided 2.8 billion air travel ticket transactions to Skytra. We have worked with IATA for over three years to integrate the dataset.
