Find the average delay for an airport

Hi All,

Is there any way to find out the average delay at an airport? We are looking to use the API to not find delays for specific flights but find the overall delay for an airport. The only way we could find is look at the delay for each flight scheduled from the airport and use these data points to find the average delay for the airport. Is there a more efficient way to do this?

Similarly, we are also interested in finding the total cancellations in an airport or general weather forecast (snowstorm etc.)

Inputs greatly appreciated.

There is not currently any way to determine the overall delay for an airport using FlightXML, however we are keeping this feature in mind for a future version of FlightXML.
