Every aviation operator within the industry has a responsibility to assist in maintaining high standards of air transport security across the globe. Since 9/11, industry standards have tightened considerably to facilitate safe travel for passengers, airline staff and aircraft, in addition to improving security for ground-based operations worldwide.
Hundreds of millions of passengers take to the air annually, boarding commercial and private aircraft for thousands of worldwide destinations. Advance Passenger Information (API) is an obligatory requirement of the U.S. and E.U. member states, with other government authorities around the world becoming increasingly aware of the necessity of lawful collection of API for the benefit of air transport security.

Reliable API delivery, coupled with PNR transmission enables government departments and border agencies to effectively screen passengers in advance of departure in order to identify potentially high-risk passengers and safeguard airline security, while expediting low-risk passengers and minimizing ground delays.

International passengers travelling to the U.S. must provide the information within 72 hours of departure, but U.S. passengers boarding internal flights often have information updated upon check-in, up to 30 minutes prior to boarding. API is transmitted, in these cases via Advance Passenger Information System (APIS) Batch Transmissions or in APIS Quick Query mode. It is therefore critical for the airline to maintain seamless reliability throughout its operations and transmission of airline passenger data, to enable air transport security measures to take place at the optimum requirement.
