Advance Passenger Information (API)
Airlines are required to present Advanced Passenger Information details before travel to Border Control and Security authorities to allow them to make routine identity checks on passengers before arrival. You may also hear it called e-Borders in the UK.
Advance Passenger Information (also called APIS) is information required by many airlines prior to the date of travel. The information will be sent to the appropriate government agencies.
After you make a booking and 10 days before your travel date you will need to login to your booking, on our website, by clicking the ‘My Booking’ tab. You can supply API by completing the fields for each passenger on your booking. If your travel date is within 10 days, you must call us with the API or email the details.
You need to supply APIS information from the travel document (usually passport) that you intend to use for travel to your destination. Please ensure that the travel document is valid. The information required is:
- First name and Surname (as shown in your passport or travel document)
- Date of Birth
- Travel Document Type (Passport or ID card)
- Travel Document Number
- Travel Document Country of Issue
- Travel Document Issue Date
- Travel Document Expiry Date
Failure to provide API information may result in you being unable to travel.
