HANDING OF ADVANCE PASSENGER INFORMATION (API)

More and more countries require airline companies that fly to them to transmit passenger data before an aircraft lands in one of them. Usually, these legal regulations encompass the transmission of data on the passengers’ identity and travel documents (passport, visa).

As a general rule, the Company does not have this data, so it must collect them shortly before an aircraft departs, which increasingly is being done by means of the so-called ‘machine-readable zone’ in the new travel documents.

Collection of the data is done solely for immediate transmission to the authorities of the destination country.
