The program is made in Python, with the aid of Flask and Jinja to display it on a web page.
First, the program takes a JSON file with all airline/symbol combinations and transforms it into a list of tuples. Each tuple is in the form of ('Symbol', 'Airline Name').
Next, we iterate among all tuples in the list and append to a new list those tuples where the airline name matches the pattern you input.
Finally, we print the list of results on a webpage, using Flask and a Jinja template.
