What is an Airports Subscription?
This subscription option allows your airport to use unlimited licenses of FME Desktop and FME Server for an annual price. The amount paid is based solely on annual passenger volumes. Now all your departments can use FME at no extra cost, saving you money and speeding up projects as compared to one-off license purchases.
Note: Since airport traffic is significantly down due to COVID-19, any subscriptions started in 2020 will be based upon whichever is the lowest (i.e. least expensive) of either your 2019 volume or your projected volume for 2020.
Benefits of the Airports Subscription
Use More FME at a Lower Price
Since budgets are often fixed, this lets your airport use as much FME as you need with zero limits on FME Desktop and FME Server licenses.
“Free” FME for All Other Departments
For one annual price, your entire organization can use FME, allowing other departments to use FME at no additional cost.
Leverage OpEx Funds
Instead of a CapEx item, account-based subscription pricing is an operating expense.
Take the guess out of budgeting. Simply pay the amount matching the number of passengers.
Eliminate Time Lag on Projects
Since you have unlimited FME, your projects will never get delayed waiting on licenses.
Reduced Procurement Costs
Save your finance team time by opting for a single subscription instead of multiple one-offs.
How do you define annual passenger volumes?
We define annual passenger volumes as the total number of enplanements in a calendar year. It can also be thought of as the total number of passengers who board planes in your airport in a particular year. The amount of cargo traffic is not taken into consideration. The amount you pay is based on the annual passenger volume for the previous calendar year.
What if our annual passenger volume figure changes?
At the next renewal date, you will renew at the then-applicable tier.
What if my airport is associated with a local government authority?
I recently paid my Annual Maintenance. Can I get a credit towards the Airports Subscription?
Yes. We provide a prorated credit for the number of months remaining in your AMC total. This will go towards your Airports Subscription for the first year.
I have existing FME licenses. What happens to them?
All your existing licenses will be rolled into this program and while your contract is in place you will not have to pay annual maintenance of those existing assets.
What about extra-cost plugins and FME Cloud?
Extra-cost plugins and FME Cloud are not included within this program and must be separately purchased and licensed.
What’s the difference between FME licenses purchased individually and those used under this program?
FME licenses that are purchased individually have a perpetual term. This grants continuous use of your FME licenses, but in order to receive upgrades and support, you will have to purchase annual maintenance. FME licenses used under this program will timeout at the end of the current term unless you renew. You will have full access to support and upgrades at no additional cost during the term.
