ARINC are to deploy an international network and message processing solution to enhance accountability and improve border security with its e-Government Solution. ARINC was selected by the Mexican Government's National Institute of Immigration (INM) as its solution supports Mexico's immigration policies and enables the government to improve its ability to process individuals entering and exiting the country.
Mexico's National Institute of Immigration needed an efficient method to collect Advanced Passenger Information (API) and turn that data into useful information. With over 250 commercial airlines operating in Mexico, ARINC will transport a majority of all API traffic into the country once final airline implementations are complete.
The solution will allow government and airport authorities to review passenger information even before aircraft land at their airport of destination. This will enable the Mexican Government to benefit greatly from improved control of passengers as well as enhanced accounting for tariffs paid by inbound, outbound, and transit passengers. INM believes that it will have a positive impact on its border operations and will enhance Mexico's overall border security and control.
ARINC will carry out a rapid deployment for the Mexican government to meet the National Institute of Immigration's goal of having the system operational by December 31st, 2013.
e-Government solutions form a part of ARINC's Electronic Borders' portfolio, which was developed to meet modern border security and government challenges. It utilizes ARINC's expertise in aviation, government, and maritime worldwide transportation, messaging, and systems integration to deliver the most efficient, cost-effective solutions possible.
"ARINC looks forward to a long and productive relationship with the government of Mexico and our close partners, INM," said Yun Chong, Vice President, ARINC Global Network and IT Solutions. "Airports and other points of entry must meet border security requirements while still providing the highest levels of customer service. We are committed to helping INM meet its current and future border security and control objectives."
