Connecting flights


#1

I apologize in advance if this is something I missed in the documentation, but is there a way to get flights that have a connection? I am only seeing nonstop flights when I do a GET request to flightxml.flightaware.com/soap/FlightXML2/wsdl and then calling flight_info_ex.

I am trying to get a list of all the flights within a 24 hour period between two airports. Only direct flights are coming back. For instance, if I pass in SAN and CLT, no flights with a connection at DFW are returned despite that being a popular route. Any ideas?

Right now there is no single call that can return the results you are looking for.
InboundFlightInfo call can be use for flights performed by the same aircraft, but this is probably not what you want.
For 1 stop flights you could look at the departures from origin, and the arrivals at your destination and with some logic in there you could find potential connections.
The future version of FlightXML is planned to have a single call to return one-stop flights as well as nonstop ones.

Thanks for the response! Any idea when that may be coming out?

I wish I could say soon, but probably this summer in beta.

Is there perhaps an update for the implementation of this feature? We would need it for a current project…
