In a proposed rule issued Friday, the U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced its intention to require Part 135 air charter operators to submit complete international passenger manifests at least 60 minutes before departure for flights both inbound to and outbound from the U.S. Alternatively, operators will be able to transmit manifest information as each passenger checks in for the flight "up to but no later than 15 minutes" before departure. The rule also proposes to amend the definition of "departure" from the current "wheels up" to the moment the aircraft is pushed back from the gate. Under current regulations, air charter operators must submit detailed passenger manifests to the CBP no later than 15 minutes after wheels up departure for the U.S. For operators departing the U.S. on an international flight, manifest transmissions are required no later than 15 minutes before wheels up departure. Comments are due by August 14.
