Travel Tools - direct flights from a specific airport?
Hi all - so sorry if I am posting to the wrong forum, but I really need to find out when, where and who flies direct to Europe from Sint Maarten (SXM). I am traveling to India, and the trip is brutal unless I can get straight to London, Paris or Zurich (I don't mind a long layover, I do mind more than 3 planes to get where I am going). somehow Kayak only pulls up multiple stops. I tried a few airlines websites, but came up with nothing (I think it might be because I am searching for a 1 way ticket)
I was wondering if there is a tool where you type in the starting airport and see the daily schedule of outgoing flights?

Welcome to flyertalk!
There are a couple of tools that you can use - google, for one, if you enter your query in a certain way. Check out http://lmgtfy.com/?q=flights+to+SXM .
If you want a more interactive tool, look no further than the Airline Route Mapper (http://arm.64hosts.com)! Unfortunately, it is windows only.
If you need a web-based solution, check out http://openflights.org/ . I hope that helps!
There are a million web sites for this. I often look at flightstats.com to see the arrivals or departures for today, yesterday, and tomorrow. This finds all the low-cost airlines that don't publish their fares. But it doesn't work well when looking at a route that's not daily or for planning a trip in a different season.
Otherwise you would have to look at the airline's timetables which I don't think are aggregated by airport anywhere.
But on matrix.itasoftware.com you can do the same search you're doing on kayak but force it to return only direct flights. I searched for SXM to LHR,CDG,ZRH with a routing code of "F" which means one direct flight. The only result was AF3515. You would have to double check that this is a non-stop but it's definitely direct.
Alternatively if you search for SXM to BOM,DEL with a routing code of "F F" (precisely two flights, though they might actually have stops but one flight number) then it gives two options. SXM-CDG-BOM/DEL on AF or SXM-EWR-BOM/DEL on UA. The UA option is a grueling 15 hour flight though.

I would just use Google. "flights from XYZ" which should yield a list of destinations and airlines. Then Googling "flights from XYZ to ABC" should give you schedules including dates and times.

Where to in India are you travelling and around what dates?
