Efficient, reliable, highly secure Advance Passenger Information systems

In response to a great need for the efficient, reliable, highly secure communication of Advanced Passenger Information (API) among Border Control Agencies (BCAs) and airlines, we are offering the quick and easy implementation of Collins Aerospace’ ARINC Electronic Borders - a common‑language application that translates messages from disparate agencies and systems around the world.

ARINC Electronic Borders allows passenger information to be examined long before check-in—helping to optimize efficiency and passenger flow as critical new security requirements are instituted. By using ICAO-defined machine readable zones (MRZs) on passports, information is stored and processed electronically, and data is then translated into required BCA formats.

No new system development, or even the modification of existing systems, is necessary. The global Collins Aerospace ARINC AviNet® network provides the ultimate solution. With the infrastructure already in place, ARINC Electronic Borders is configured to be as cost-effective as possible. We understand the urgency across the industry to reduce operating costs and avoid adding any significant investments to already strained budgets.

Economical and versatile, the private, highly-secure ARINC AviNet global communications network was designed for handling critical, sensitive information. Our network availability - 99.999% - is a proven industry standard around the world.

With ARINC Electronic Borders, API can easily be sent to a country of origin and/or destination, allowing seamless communications between airlines and BCAs - efficiently and reliably.


Automated airport security screening - ARINC VeriPax

Facing more overcrowding and greater operational challenges than ever before, airports need solutions that move passengers as quickly and efficiently as possible while accommodating evolving security requirements and new International Air Transport Association (IATA) initiatives. Collins Aerospaces’ ARINC Passenger Reconciliation System (PRS)—VeriPax™—optimizes passenger flow at security checkpoints by complementing existing manual processes, enables the verification of flight and boarding pass information, and incorporates new initiatives in airport technology.

ARINC VeriPax reads boarding passes using new 2D barcode scanners, automatically screens passengers against airline host systems in real time, determines clearance and provides alerts to agents when necessary. Designed to combat the toughest challenges of the modern airport environment, ARINC VeriPax strengthens security and simplifies the process at the same time, delivering a dynamic solution that can affect operational efficiency across the board.
