Passenger Data Exchange Programs (API/PNR) (Classroom, 3 days)


About

This course answers your questions about Advance Passenger Information (API), Interactive API (IAPI) and Passenger Name Record (PNR) data, as well as the many standards currently used to transmit them. Building on the API-PNR Toolkit, focus is on practical use-cases for the collection and processing of passenger data, including for the fight again terrorism, international crimes or pandemic management. The course also reviews existing legal requirements related to API and PNR. Passenger data has become a central piece of the facilitation puzzle, as an increasing number of governments require API-PNR data using multiple transmission standards. ICAO, IATA and the WCO have responded with the API-PNR Toolkit, a recommended global framework and international standard for transmitting passenger data. When implemented, this framework will bring value to what is currently a costly process for all parties involved. Airlines, regulators, and airports can benefit from this opportunity to work together toward a solution for information sharing. Not only can a common data program enhance the effectiveness of national border control, it will also ultimately improve security throughout the industry.

This course is available at IATA Training Centers and Regional Training Partner locations, and on-demand as in-house training.
