Airline Reservation System In Java | Java Project

by | Nov 15, 2022 | Coding, Java

Introduction of the Project

In this article, you will find the source code and explanation of the Airline Reservation System in Java. For this java project, we have also used the Swing module to implement some GUI along with the SQL database to store information on flights available. This project has a method to book tickets on a selected flight & get a boarding pass too.



The two major objectives of this java project are: 

  1. To create a user interface for the user to look for available flights and then book his tickets accordingly.
  2. To implement the tables that contain flight information and attach the functionality of booking tickets on the selected flight & get a boarding pass. 


  • Swing (for creating the Graphical User Interface (GUI) of the project)

public static DefaultTableModel buildTableModel(ResultSet rs)

throws SQLException {

ResultSetMetaData metaData = rs.getMetaData();

// names of columns

Vector<String> columnNames = new Vector<String>();

int columnCount = metaData.getColumnCount();

for (int column = 1; column <= columnCount; column++) {



// data of the table

Vector<Vector<Object>> data = new Vector<Vector<Object>>();

while ( {

Vector<Object> vector = new Vector<Object>();

return new DefaultTableModel(data, columnNames);



Explanation of the Code

The code consists of two parts, the first one involves creating the GUI for flight availability and booking, and the other is the retrieval of information from the SQL database so a user can book tickets on the selected flight and get a boarding pass.

Let us look at the GUI first:

1. The main screen consists of 3 buttons for searching for flights, booking tickets & resetting the screen, respectively.

2. It has five text fields & a JLabel that requires information on customer booking tickets.

3. It consists of a Jtable that displays the stored information in the database.

Moving to the retrieval, we have applied:

1. Build a connection first with the database using the Connection object.

2. Inject the query that stores table data in ResultSet.

3. Finally, send data to Jtable.

4. The Search button is for retrieving flights available from source to destination & displays in jtable & if not, then pops an error message.

5. The Book Tickets button is to book tickets for a selected flight from the table & then print details of the customer, flight & total amount in JtextArea beneath the table.


Main Interface

Airline Reservation System In Java | Java Project


We have implemented a Java project that helps to manage customer information & help to book a flight with Swing (used for GUI). This Airline Reservation System in Java program is a very efficient & easy way to reserve tickets & have all the details of the customer & flight in the boarding pass attached to it.
