airTEXT is a free air quality and health information service for the public in London and parts of the South East of England. It provides air quality forecasts for three days in advance for O3, NO2, PM10 and PM2.5.

People who sign up to the airTEXT pollution alerts receive voice, email or text messages when air pollution is forecast to be moderate or higher. The service is aimed at people who suffer from heart and breathing problems, whose health or quality of life may be affected by air pollution. airTEXT has provided forecasts using ADMS-Forecast since 2007.

The forecasts are available through API for use in third party apps and services, such as local authority websites or smartphone apps. Please contact us if you would like to discuss using the API in this way.

The airTEXT Consortium is a consortium of participating local authorities, the Greater London Authority, Environment Agency and Health Protection Agency. Defra and GLA have provided funding for the development of the forecasts. airTEXT has also benefited from support from the EU under its Copernicus and FP7 programmes.
