Border management systems are in place to monitor travellers who enter and leave a country by its borders and are integral to national security on a scale that encompasses economic and political influence in addition to the ultimate goal of ensuring the safety of its people.
Modern border control in an airport environment includes the careful screening of passenger baggage and secure flight passenger data. Airlines and operators are bound by the mandatory regulations of certain countries to provide Advance Passenger Information (API) in addition to PNR transmission. Failure to provide API for travellers bound for the U.S. can leave airlines facing fines of up to $5000.

The integration of aviation security software into border management systems can be a key element to facilitate passenger data exchange for the enhancement of aviation security.
Border management systems rely upon swift and timely transfer of airline passenger data in order to perform efficient screening. In the UK, the Authority to Carry Requests scheme is in place to identify people who pose a potential threat to border security and the reliable transmission of API is necessary for the process to be effective.
