If you’d like to build a product based on some kind of data from airline websites, web scraping is one of the best ways to implement it. You can collect, aggregate, and process data almost in real time.
One more option is to receive the necessary data via API, but most known airlines have no API at all or have huge limitations on the data you can get.
With the help of web scraping solutions, you can get and monitor all of the information that airline websites contain:
- flight schedules
- ticket prices
- airport information
- flight changes
