I'd like to be able to scrape flights prices from momondo and skyscanner for personal use only. I want to give the script a list of airports (several hundreds i guess) and the script automatically returns the price. The momondo/skyscanner search engine is pretty slow, so it is important, that there is enough time for them to find the cheapest flights.
The depature City is given als London Heathrow or Birmingham. The Destinations are Frankfurt, Paris, Milan,.... The script now tries every combination of my list and returns the price. After that, the data is saved in an Excel file with the name of the departing airport, arriving airport and the price.
Regarding the dates: they should be handled flexibel. So I have the possibility to:
a) set fixed dates like: 16.7.2017-24.7.2017
b) give a stay durations like: 10 days in September and the script searches for 1.9-11-9, 2.9-12.9, 3.9-13.9...
From what I've seen this should be pretty simple for people with programming backgrounds. I know someone who did this with little background in programming and it took him less than a day.
