ForwardKeys’ Seat Capacity Dataset

It is a challenge to get hold of real insights, not just figures, on the exact number of people travelling to and from a specific destination.

ForwardKeys offers a database with Seat Capacity information, containing almost all commercial direct flights, 99% in the entire world. This includes flights from scheduled carriers and low-cost carriers. This data is updated weekly to help destinations and finance companies understand how well-connected destinations are to various source markets, or whether there are enough airline seats to accommodate a major event and/or demand.
