How-to-Scrape-Wizz-Air-Flight-Prices-Data

In this tutorial, we'll explore how to utilize Python and Selenium to scrape airfare prices from Wizz Air, one of the world's leading and well-known Online Travel Agencies (OTAs). By combining Python 3.5+ with Selenium, a widely-used web browser automation package, we can automate web interactions and extract valuable flight price data from Wizz Air's website.

Install Python 3.5+

Ensure that Python 3.5 or a newer version is installed on your system. You can download Python from the official website.

Install Required Packages

Use the pip package manager to install Selenium by executing the following command in your terminal or command prompt:

ChromeDriver Installation

Download the appropriate version of ChromeDriver that matches your installed Google Chrome browser version. ChromeDriver can be downloaded from the official Selenium website.

Scraping Policy and Data Input Strategy:

Before proceeding with the Python script, let's understand the scraping policy and the data input strategy for the flight price scraper.

Scraping Policy:

1.1 Ethical Scraping: We will conduct web scraping in an ethical and responsible manner, adhering to the terms of service of the websites we are scraping. We will not engage in any activities that violate website policies, disrupt website performance, or compromise user data.

1.2 Data Usage: The scraped flight price data will be used solely for personal purposes, such as travel planning and analysis. We will not distribute, sell, or share the data with any third parties without proper authorization.

1.3 API Usage: Whenever possible, we will prioritize using official APIs provided by airlines or travel websites for accessing flight prices data. APIs are the recommended and authorized method for obtaining data.

1.4 Respectful Request Frequency: We will set appropriate delays between requests to avoid overwhelming the website's servers. Excessive scraping and high request rates can lead to IP blocking or other restrictive measures.

Data Input Strategy:

2.1 CSV File Format: We will create a CSV (Comma-Separated Values) file to input the desired flight routes and dates for scraping. Each row of the CSV file will represent a different roundtrip route, and the columns will contain the necessary details.

2.2 Required Columns: The CSV file must include the following columns with their respective data:

Departure City

Destination City

Departure Date

Return Date

2.3 Multiple Routes: You are free to add as many routes as you like to the CSV file. Each row represents a single roundtrip route.

By following these scraping policies and adhering to the data input strategy, we can conduct a responsible and efficient scraping process while accessing flight price data from Wizz Air or any other travel website. Let's now proceed to write the Python script based on this policy and strategy.

We can also scrape data like:

  • Destinations
  • Route having departures on Monday and returns Friday
  • Scrape prices data on start month and end month
  • An excel file with data and prices for the destination.

Executing the Whole Code

When executing the code, each flight's output is saved as a CSV file with the date and time of the scraping as the file name. The scraper automatically identifies all flights on the same path and places them in the relevant folder (named after the route).

Executing-the-Whole-Code

Find scraped information for Athens-Abu Dhabi routes in individual CSV files, each named after its execution date and time. Each CSV file represents a scrape sample for the Athens-Abu Dhabi route with a title indicating the date and time of execution.

Data Fields

The flight scraper can extract various data fields including Departure Time, Arrival Time, Duration, Airline, Layovers, Airplane Type, Arrival Airport Name, Price, Departure Coach, Stops, and the Exact Time of Scraping. For flights with connections, additional information will also be provided.

Script

Here's the script to start a web scraper for round-trip flights by importing necessary libraries and specifying the Chrome driver:

Using Selenium tools, you will construct functions to locate specific characteristics on the webpage based on the function names.

For each flight in the CSV routes file, the following step is repeated:
