Project Overview

The client reached out to Chetu with the objective of developing a new version of their charter flight search application. Aside from updating this app to version 2.0, the client needed to integrate their platform with third-party search and booking providers including:

  • Charterindex.com API
  • Avinode.com API
  • Yelp.com API
  • HomeAway.com API
  • Ticketmaster.com API

The Fix

The Project

Chetu used various technologies to realize the client's project, including:

  • PHP and MySQL for the client's web-based administration website and API development
  • Stripe.com payment integration services
  • Swift programming, Google Maps and Stripe.com SDK integration for native iOS app
  • Android SDK programming, Google Maps and Stripe.com integration for native Android app

To safeguard against duplicate and incorrect data coming from an API response, Chetu implemented a mechanism to get API responses, compare them with blocked content identifiers, and send the results to the mobile application. Additionally, an administrator portal was developed to allow customers to manually suspend data from other providers, as well as add missing data from the 3rd party provider. For example, if the number of rooms is not showing on the API data for bookings, the customers could manually check the number of bedrooms in a vacation home or villa and update this additional data to the API response.

The Result:

The finished product yielded two native applications that were developed to conform to Android and Apple marketplace guidelines, and was subsequently released. Once downloaded from the app stores, this app allows users to conveniently search for and request chartered flights, chartered yachts, homes, cars and tickets on a single app.
