Advance Passenger Information System
The purpose of advance passenger information
The immigration authorities of many countries require all airlines to provide passenger passport information prior to departure of any inbound or outbound flights to ensure safety and security.Read More
The purpose of API is to give international governments and agencies the ability to screen passengers in advance of arrival in the destination country. API must be delivered a minimum of 20 minutes (U.S.) before flight departure. Information is screened, and returned with any ‘persons of interest’ flagged. - Advance Passenger Processing Advance Passenger Processing is a standard for flight and document data declaration in real-time. It has strong similarities with APIS in terms of what Traveller and flight data the government receives. The key difference is timing. APP takes place as a real-time interactive transaction during check-in. This enables the government to check databases of passports, visas, alerts, and according to government-dictated business rules, deny or allow boarding.
Advanced Passenger Information
Advanced Passenger Information (API) data are basic information that identify air travelers, collected during the check-in, and using the PAXLST message (WCO, ICAO and IATA standard).Read More
The Advance Passenger Information System (APIS) is an electronic data interchange system established ORIGINALY by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, but also utilized by some other countries. APIS currently used by governments and those planned for future implementation can be placed in two distinct processes, each having unique features and delivering specific results.
Non-interactive batch style API data covering all passengers and, in many cases, all crew members on board a specific flight are gathered during the check-in process and then transmitted in a single manifest message at or immediately following flight reconciliation or departure.
Interactive advance passenger information (iAPI)
An alternative to the batch style approach to API is an interactive API (iAPI) system allowing two way communication, in near real-time, on a passenger-by-passenger or transaction by transaction basis, which is initiated during check-in.
Required passenger information for all API countries (note that additional information requirements vary by country):Read More
- Official Travel Document Number - Issuing State or Organization of the Official Travel Document - Official Travel Document Type - Expiration Date of Official Travel Document - Surname/Given Name(s) - Nationality - Date of Birth - Gender - Seating Information - Baggage Information - Traveler‟s Status - Place/Port of Original Embarkation - Place of Birth - Visa Number - Issue Date of the Visa
Passenger Name Record (PNR)
Passenger Name Record (PNR) data are traveler flight reservation and itinerary information collected by air carriers (or their data providers).Read More
Specific PNR data collected may change according to air carriers. It includes: type of ticket, date of travel, number of bags, seating information, etc. This type of information is in the commercial carriers’ reservation systems.
