Prerequisite Implementing Web Scraping in Python with BeautifulSoup

In this article, we are going to write a python script to get Flight Status.

Module needed:

  • bs4: Beautiful Soup(bs4) is a Python library for pulling data out of HTML and XML files. This module does not come built-in with Python. To install this type the below command in the terminal.
pip install bs4
  • Requests: Request allows you to send HTTP/1.1 requests extremely easily. This module also does not come built-in with Python. To install this type the below command in the terminal.
pip install requests

Approach:

  • Import module
  • Create a URL get function
  • Now merge the information into URL and pass the URL into the getdata() function and Convert that data into HTML code.
  • Now find the required tag from the HTML code and traverse the result

Implementation:

Python3




# import module
import requests
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
  
# UDF for get HTML code
# from URL
  
  
def get_html(Airline_code, Flight_number, Date, Month, Year):
    def getdata(url):
        r = requests.get(url)
        return r.text
  
    # url
    url = "https://www.flightstats.com/v2/flight-tracker/"+Airline_code + \
        "/"+Flight_number+"?year="+Year+"&month="+Month+"&date="+Date
  
    # pass the url
    # into getdata function
    htmldata = getdata(url)
    soup = BeautifulSoup(htmldata, 'html.parser')
    return(soup)
  
# Get Flight number
# from Html code
  
  
def flight_no(soup):
    Flight_no = ""
  
    # Find div tag with
    # unique class name
    for i in soup.find("div", class_="ticket__FlightNumberContainer-s1rrbl5o-4 hgbvHg"):
        Flight_no = Flight_no + (i.get_text()) + " "
    return (Flight_no)
  
# Get Airport name
# from HTML code
  
  
def airport(soup):
    Airport_name = []
    # Find div tag with
    # unique class name
    for i in soup.find_all("div", class_="text-helper__TextHelper-s8bko4a-0 CPamx"):
        Airport_name.append(i.get_text())
    return (Airport_name)
  
# get status
# from HTML code
  
  
def status(soup, Airport_list):
    Time_status = []
    Airport_List = []
    Status_str = []
    Gate = []
    Gate_no = []
  
    # Find div tag with
    # unique class name
    # to get Gate number
    for data in soup.find_all("div", class_="ticket__TGBLabel-s1rrbl5o-15 gcbyEH text-helper__TextHelper-s8bko4a-0 dfeqpK"):
        Gate.append(data.get_text())
    for data in soup.find_all("div", class_="ticket__TGBValue-s1rrbl5o-16 icyRae text-helper__TextHelper-s8bko4a-0 cCfBRT"):
        Gate_no.append(data.get_text())
  
    # Get status from
    # html code
    for i in soup.find_all("div", class_="text-helper__TextHelper-s8bko4a-0 bcmzUJ"):
        Status_str.append(i.get_text())
    for i in soup.find_all("div", class_="text-helper__TextHelper-s8bko4a-0 cCfBRT"):
        Time_status.append(i.get_text())
  
    # traverse the Data
    # from scraping data
    for item in range(4):
        if item == 0:
            print(Airport_list[0])
        if item == 2:
            print("")
            print(Airport_list[1])
        print(Status_str[item] + " : " + Time_status[item])
        print(Gate[item] + " : " + Gate_no[item])
    for item in range(len(Gate)):
        print(Gate[item] + " : " + Gate_no[item])
  
  
# Driver code
if __name__ == '__main__':
    # Input Data from geek
    Airline_code = 'G8'
    Flight_number = '134'
    Date = '23'
    Month = '10'
    Year = '2020'
  
    # Calling the get_html
    # with argument
    # function calling
    soup = get_html(Airline_code, Flight_number, Date, Month, Year)
    print("Flight number : ", flight_no(soup))
    Airport_list = airport(soup)
    status(soup, Airport_list)


Output:

Flight number :  G8 134 GoAir
