In order to offer the most value possible through our ever-growing outdoor air quality database, AirVisual is delighted to share free access to our global AQ data with everyone, through our air quality API.

Our IQAir air quality API has three subscription plans with different features and levels of data, to adapt on your needs:
- Community (free)
- Startup (subscription)
- Enterprise (subscription)


To get stuck into our global database, first you need to create your very own, free API key. Think of this as your unique 'key' to open the door to your plan's specific set of data.

To create an API key, sign in to your IQAir account - or register one if you haven't.

Simply click on the 'Dashboard' button on the top-right corner of the home page of IQAir website, or access with this link:

Once signed in, click the "Air quality API" tab in the left menu bar. From the page, you can create your free API key by clicking the top-right '+ Create an API key' button. On this page, you can also access API documentation, edit the key as well as direct to view our subscription API plans.


You can manage your keys at any time by returning to the 'Air Quality API' page from your dashboard. Here, you can view your API key's information, including Plan type, creation date, number of calls used, and expiry date.

By offering access to our entire air quality database through tiered API plans, IQAir hopes to stimulate further innovative responses to the air quality crisis, and grow the reach of this outdoor pollution data across as many platforms as possible, to have the biggest impact in tackling this global issue.
