Please note: Customers with accounts in the Legacy FlightStats Developer Center will need to create new accounts. The APIs have been completely rewritten and include new pricing and billing. You will need to review and accept the new terms and conditions. If you have specific contractual questions, please email our sales team.

Working With FlightStats

When you sign up for a new account, you'll automatically be assigned the Evaluation plan, which offers a limited number of API transactions free of charge. The Evaluation plan is intended for initial development using the APIs.

Once you're ready to buy, enter your credit card information in the Account section of the Developer Center, and choose a paid plan.

The Commercial plan is intended to meet the needs of most API users. It offers access to most of the Flex APIs with volume-based pricing (you pay for what you use). We also offer a Limited plan, which offers similar pricing but with a limit on the number of transactions per month, ensuring that your monthly bill will stay under $150 US.

If the the above plans do not meet your needs, please contact your FlightStats sales representative or complete our Contact a FlightStats Representative form to discuss custom contract and monthly billing options.
