Get "gate" and "terminal" on flights information


#1

Hello,

Im using Flightware APIV2 and at the moment I have the following information:

  • Arrived Flights
  • Departed Flights

I am using two API calls to get this information.

Now, I want to add “Gate” and “Terminal” information on every flight information.

Is it possible?

Thank you!

I believe you have to call AirlineFlightInfo to get gate/terminal info in FXML2.

I’d strongly suggest looking at FXML3’s AirportBoards, if you can.

Hi we are using the FXML3 API and retrieving the FlightInfoStatus the documentation states that there are fields for terminal and gates:

|gate_dest |string? |Gate at the destination airport, if known|
|gate_orig |string? |Gate at the origin airport, if known|
|terminal_dest |string? |Terminal at the destination airport, if known|
|terminal_orig |string? |Terminal at the origin airport, if known|

See: https://de.flightaware.com/commercial/flightxml/v3/apiref.rvt#op_FlightInfoStatus

We never get this data back in the response though even if it is displayed on the flightaware homepage.

Do we still have to call the AirportBoards enpoint or will this data be available soon?

You need to add the include_ex_data=1 parameter with your request to AirportBoard in order to get gate/terminal data with the results.
