Advance Passenger Information System (APIS) transmission requirements will again change. Effective on or about October 4, commercial operators must make an APIS transmission using the UN-EDIFACT format, which captures additional passenger information. The NBAA APIS submission service does not use this format and as of that date will no longer be available. The new Customs & Border Protection (CBP) eAPIS Online Transmission System uses the UN-EDIFACT format, and the majority of APIS transmissions currently are being made with CBP’s system. NBAA “strongly encourages” operators to start using the CBP eAPIS system.
