API/APIS system for charter airlines
API Implementation Guide Preparation
ABOMIS Innovations Inc. can prepare an Advance Passenger Information (API) Implementation Guide based on IATA/WCO/ICAO guidelines for each country. We will provide customers with tables that include comparisons of API specifications. Each Government can select desired API specifications while remaining within IATA/WCO/ICAO standards.
Developing a Cloud Data-center
ABOMIS has developed an online platform for receiving and processing API messages. We have the capability to offer pre-configured reports or tailor report formats to meet specific requirements, both presented in a high-quality UI/UX format. Additionally, we can store API-data for the required duration.
Evaluation of Legal Aspects
We will conduct a thorough review of commercial airlines’ legal obligation to collect and provide API-data to border services of every country. Our review will uncover the disparities between the current constitutional arrangements and the arrangements required for our clients. ABOMIS is prepared to customize the project to suit various requirements. The project can involve collecting data from airlines, transmitting them to relevant authorities, and simultaneously informing carriers of the corresponding response. Alternatively, we can create a complete API system that manages all processes related to API transmission.
What is Advance Passenger Information?
Computerized passenger screening/clearance systems are crucial. They guarantee that airport systems receive details of arriving passengers before the flight arrives. This gives Border Service Agencies adequate time to determine their response. The notification to Border Control Agencies by carriers (or third parties) using electronic data interchange (EDI) is called Advance Passenger Information (API).
The Advance Passenger Information (API) program has two objectives. It aims to speed up and facilitate the border control process while making it more intelligent and capable. Additionally, API systems act as an early warning system for Border Service Agencies to differentiate high-risk travellers (wanted criminals, known terrorists, and persons-of-interest) from low-risk travellers.
API data includes:
- Basic information of a passenger (Name, DoB, Gender, nationality and travel documents)
- Flight/Vessel Information
- Scheduled Departure/Arrival time
There are two categories for API systems: batch-style API systems and interactive API (iAPI) systems.
- Batch API systems transmit a complete manifest of passenger data before a certain amount of time to gate closing.
- Interactive API (iAPI) systems transmit API data on a per-person basis to the host nation’s border service agencies via real-time datalink.
API data are sent using the IATA Type B message format, web portal, MQ, E-mail, Fax and (S)FTP.
