Advance Passenger Information (API)

You may need to provide certain information before you can fly, to comply with government requirements.

As part of their security programmes, some governments require us to collect a few pieces of information for every passenger onboard our aircraft. This is referred to as Advance Passenger Information (API).

Providing your Advance Passenger Information (API):

You'll be required to provide us with your Advance Passenger Information when you check in:

  • If checking in online, you can add the information as part of this process
  • When you arrive at the airport, if you're checking in using a self service kiosk, you can add your API information then.
  • If you're checking in with one of our staff at the counter, they'll add your API information.

You won't be able to add your API information before you check in.

The following governments on our routes ask for this information:

  • All Caribbean destinations
  • China
  • India
  • Japan
  • South Africa
  • United Arab Emirates
  • United Kingdom
  • USA.


The information we’ll need to know is as follows:

  • Full name
  • Gender
  • Date of birth
  • Nationality
  • Country of residence
  • Travel document type (normally your passport)
  • Travel document number
  • Address of first night spent in the country (although this only applies to passengers travelling to the US).
