Retrieving the actual gate departure time, and actual gate arrival time

It seems that getFlightInfoEx actualdeparturetime and actualarrivaltime fields are the takeoff and landing times, respectively.

So on the flight below, the api returns 1:57pm (takeoff time), when I want it to return 1:42pm (gate departure time)

Is it possible to get the gate departure and gate arrival times of a flight with the api?

Thanks!

You would need to make a call to the AeroAPI 2b extension AeroAPI (formerly FlightXML) 2b Explorer. You can use your existing AeroAPI 2 credentials for authorization.

http://flightxml.flightaware.com/json/FlightXML2b/FlightInfoStatus?ident=DAL253 would get you what you need
