We have a project for which we would need scheduled flight data, and then some actual flight status requests. I am trying to get a feel for the complexity and rough cost of doing this in using the FlightAware API.
(Please excuse my novice level here - when I have an ideaa this is a good approach I will pass the ball onto smarter people…)
We want to look up the following:
Part 1) List all flights scheduled in the next 24 hours departing Airport X and heading to Airport Y. (We will have 14 variations on airport Y). Including flight number, departure time, arrival time. (This would be fetched up to 8 times a day.)
Part 2) For each flight above, enumerate the status of the flight and time to destination. (This would be fetched every 5-10 minutes during certain parts of the day - say 20 times per day total)
I am trying to figure out the feasability and rough cost of this:
- Which category of request these would be (of the 4 price levels)
- If these would be seperate requests for each flight? Or the 15 responses would list 15 flights?
- Can we filter out code-shares and only get one response per actual plane?
Many thanks, any direction would be appreciated.
