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.
- Evaluation Plan -- free for new users
- Commercial Plan -- volume pricing for typical uses
- Contract Plan -- available through the FlightStats sales staff
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 offers a low number of transactions. Customers are expected to upgrade to a paid plan before launching their product, or when they have exceeded the Evaluation allowance.
Developers are allowed to evaluate both Commercial and Premium APIs with the Evaluation plan.
