What is it?
The CKI Flight Gendec Update API supports updating the General declaration, commonly called GENDEC for a flight. GENDEC contains data pertaining to the crew, illness, disinfect and aircraft registration information.
Why use it?
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have agreed upon standards for reporting documents which are published in ICAO Annex 9 and in WHO International Health regulations. One of these reporting documents is the General Declarations Form (GENDEC). The GENDEC is a basic report furnishing flight crew information as required by the public health, immigration and customs authorities at the departure, transit and arrival ports of each flight.
How it works
The CKI Flight Gendec Update API updates crew info, disinfect info, illness info and aircraft info required for the General Declarations report. If the information update is more than one, the update will be a single string wherein a comma will separate each update. However, the aircraft info comprises of tail number and arrival airport code. The value for aircraft info can only be overridden.
In the event of a flight incident, the flight in trouble (FIT) process allows the airline to restrict GENDEC Update. If the flight requested is in trouble, the service will return “FLIGHT RESTRICTED”.
How to use
The GENDEC update is prepared at the station of origin for the entire flight and is completed by each station where the GENDEC must be handed to the authorities.
If a crew change is done, the station concerned must prepare a new GENDEC for the remaining sector of the flight.
