FlightStats offers simple, volume-based pricing for our Standard Flex APIs. Most customers will start off with the free Evaluation plan and then upgrade to the Commercial plan for ongoing use.

In addition to our Standard APIs, FlightStats offers additional Premium APIs available within our Contract Plan. Please note that converting from the Evaluation Plan to the Commercial Plan will immediately disable your free trial access to any Premium APIs. To avoid possible disruption, we encourage you to contact us early to allow sufficient time to review Contract Plan terms and pricing with our sales team.

You must read and agree to the Terms and Conditions.

The Evaluation plan is a free plan intended for developers who are evaluating the Flex APIs and is available only for new accounts. This plan is available for 30 days.
