Check-in & ID - Advance Passenger Information (API)

It is a mandatory requirement that all airlines provide details about their passengers before they travel in and out of the UK. This requirement is called Advance Passenger Information (API).

To comply with the API regulation, we will request all the following details for each passenger on your booking, which you can find on their passports:

  • Full name (as it appears on the passport/ID card)
  • Date of birth
  • Passport number/ID card
  • Country where the passport/ID card was issued
  • Passport/ID card expiry date
  • Nationality
  • Gender

If you made your booking through a travel agent, tour operator, another 3rd party or website then you need to contact your travel provider so they can add your API to your booking.

If you are unable to add your API in advance, this can be added at the airport check-in desk for you free of charge on the day of departure, but this will lengthen the queue and your check-in process.

How to add or change your API online

Adding Advanced Passenger Information (API) to your online booking is a straightforward process which saves you time at the airport.

Once your details have been submitted successfully, confirmation will display on the screen.
