AeroAPI Query Fees

A single Query may return one-to-many results, dependent upon the type of call being made and the input parameters provided. For pricing purposes, a ‘result set’ is defined as 15 results/records. Pricing is per result set.

Note: The max_pages input parameter can be used to limit/control how many result sets will be returned, with one page being equivalent to one result set.

Foire aux questions

How am I charged when the API returns multiple results for one query?

In general, you are charged once per query. However, for queries that may return multiple pages of results (defined as sets of up to 15 results), you will be charge for the total number of pages returned (calculated as the per-query fee times the number of pages returned). You can control the maximum number of pages returned by the API for one query. Please refer to the API documentation for details on how to set the "max_pages" parameter.

Comment puis-je consulter l'état de ma facturation AeroAPI ?

Existing customers can visit the AeroAPI portal to see accrued charges.

What is new in version 4?

Version 4 features more detailed results on flight queries and push alerts so you get the same or more information with fewer calls. We redesigned the API to provide an easier to use RESTful interface. The all-new interactive web portal allows you to explore the API and try it without writing any code. A 99.5% uptime guarantee is also now available.

I use version 2 or version 3 of AeroAPI, what is the future of these products?

Version 2 and version 3 of AeroAPI will continue to be available to existing customers until October 31, 2023 and their respective pricing is unchanged. These legacy products are no longer available for new sign-ups. We encourage legacy AeroAPI customers to plan to adopt the new version of AeroAPI in the near future so that they will not be impacted by the end-of-life of the old products in 2023. Additionally, customers on the new version of AeroAPI will receive access to future updates of AeroAPI without changing to a new product.

I use version 2 or version 3 of AeroAPI, how can I switch to version 4?

You can get started with the new version of AeroAPI today, just sign-up on-line. As an existing AeroAPI customer, the monthly minimum fee is waived for the first 3 months of your new subscription at the Standard or Premium tier to help you get started.
