Project Description

I require a script that will allow the user to input data into a number of fields for finding a flight. The script will then search and scrape a number of airline websites & return with flight information & prices (ascending order by price). The user can then click on the a link and be forwarded to the booking page of the airline. The link may be an affilate link so please ensure this is possible. Input fields... 1. Departure Airport (dropdown list) 2. Destination Airport (dropdown list) 3. Single trip or return (dropdown list) 4. Departure Date (calender) 5. Return Date (if the user selects return flight) (calender) 6. Number of Adults (input field) 7. Number of Children (aged 2 - 12 years old) (input field) 8. Number of Infants (under 2 years old) (input field) The script must then... 1. Search from the list of airlines (scroll down for a list) 2. Find all flights that match input criteria above 3. List these flights in ascending price order, with flight price displayed. 4. Have a direct link to booking page, with links opening in a new window (remember, this link may be an affiliate link) Other... 1. Error Messageing when the script returns 0 available flights or if all the fields are not completed correctly. 2. A "loading" bar or sign is necessary whilst the script is working. 3. It must be easy to add/delete airlines & Destinations/departure points. Not all the airlines below will fly to the destinations listed so the script must be able to handle this. Airlines to search...

A list of UK airports can be found here: [url removed, login to view] There may be problems with the script searching airline websites if the airline edits their search function or website coding. This issue must be addressed to ensure the script is stable.
