Feature request: additional fields in AirportInfoStruct


#1

The current AirportInfoStruct contains some useful data, as defined here:
http://flightxml.flightaware.com/soap/FlightXML2/doc#type_AirportInfoStruct

It would be really helpful to also have the following pieces of information for each airport:

  • altitude
  • list of TerminalInfoStructs each with:
    • terminal lat/long
    • terminal name / number
    • terminal type (domestic or international)

I noticed in my testing that the latitude & longitude provided in AirportInfoStruct correspond to approximately the center point of the various runways that the airport has. It might be useful to also have locations of terminals - I need this for my app to get driving directions to the airport, and thus had to supplement the AirportInfo data by using the Google Places API to get terminal locations.

We’ll keep this in mind, but I cannot provide any speculation on when this addition might occur.
