Estimated Departure Time and Taxiing



I have two questions about the FlightXML API:

  1. How do I get the estimated departure time for a flight? Neither AirlineFlightSchedules, FlightInfo or Scheduled contains the information.

  2. How do I get taxiing time shown in the FlightAware Live Flight Tracking using the FlightXML API?

Best regards

  1. FlightXML2 lacks estimateddeparturetime. We’ve added that to FlightXML3 which will be out very soon so you can use that to get those fields.

  2. You need the gate departure time and actualdeparturetime to get taxing time. We don’t expose the gate times in FlightXML2 so you’ll have to wait on FlightXML3 to get that information.
