Alaska Airlines Selects ARINC AviNet Electronic Border Solution
Alaska Airlines selected the ARINC AviNet electronic border solution to comply with Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) passenger reporting requirements.
According to ARINC, the CBSA passenger reporting requirements call for mandated data transmission methods of Advanced Passenger Information (API).
The AviNet solution allows ARINC to directly submit flight crew API data on behalf of Alaska Airlines.
“Our relationship with Alaska Airlines is another step toward reaching our goal of being the premiere provider of border security services throughout the airline industry, and our seamless interoperability with existing airline technology and CBSA gives us a competitive advantage over other message providers,” said Yun Chong, vice president of global network and information technology solutions at ARINC.
