Return All Arrivals For A Specific Airport


#1

We are trying to create a table of common flights into a given airport.
For each flight, we’d need:

  • Flight number
  • Scheduled Arrival Time.

Is it possible to get a list of all arrivals for a specific airport for, say, the next seven days?

Thanks!

FXML3::AirportBoards (using type: arrivals) would be able to provide the flight number and filed arrival time (as well as estimated and actual) in the same response. Its response body is is an array of FlightInfoStatusStructs. However, the arrivals would need to be collected on at least a daily basis to build a full week data set.

The arrived time window of results in FXML (both v2 and v3) will list an arrived flight up to 24 hours after its actual arrival time. If pulling arrivals once a day you’d need to set the offset paramater in the request to the next_offset observed in the previous response until it reaches -1 (no more results). The amount of results will depend on the size and activity level of the airport.
