ADS introduces new "Pay as you Calculate" pricing for the APC service

Aviation Data Solutions (ADS) has launched a new, more flexible pricing structure for its Airport Pricing Calculator (APC) platform covering combined airport and handling costs, giving operators the choice of three new calculation-based package types to support them through challenging market conditions.

The APC tool now also includes the ability to carry out instant retrospective calculations to easily identify and challenge incorrect invoices, saving operators time and money.

Greater pricing flexibility for business aviation operators wanting combined airport and handling cost calculations

The APC service, launched in December 2020, is the first publicly available combined airport and handling cost calculation system.

It enables operators to instantly see the cost of any aircraft in their fleet visiting any airport in the world, covering all business aircraft types, all itineraries and all combinations of services.

The new pricing structure was launched in response to high customer demand and now has more options to suit all operator needs, ranging from ‘Pay as you Calculate’ with a single fixed price per calculation, to monthly quota-based packages covering up to 80, 250 and 625 calculations per month.

There is also the option for bespoke all-inclusive packages available for high-volume users.

All packages also include an API key allowing customer airlines to run instant calculations within their own in-house sales and operations software, with integrations underway with four major software platforms.

“The demand for our Airport Pricing Calculator since its launch just a few months ago has been immense,” says founder and CEO Adrian Parsons.

“Operators have told us that in current market conditions getting an instant and accurate calculation can be the difference between flights being profitable or loss-making.”

“Customers told us they wanted pay as you go pricing options to access the immediate cost savings the APC brings, but without the overhead cost.

“We have been able to adapt our business model to support all operator needs and are committed to supporting the recovery and growth of the industry.”
