What is it?
The Airport Check-In PassengerBoardingClearanceOverride service facilitates the option:
- To override the boarding clearance status associated with the passenger.
- To cancel the government boarding clearance status override previously for the passenger.
Why use it?
Some government agencies prefer to perform a pre-boarding validation for the passengers by collecting passenger details in advance and advise the eligibility of the passenger to arrive/depart from their country. SabreSonic® CSS Airport Check-in will determine whether to allow check-in, bag tag issuance, and boarding of a passenger based on the clearance response received from the applicable government agencies.
How it works
The Service has the capability to override passenger boarding clearance status and cancel the override previously performed.
The boarding clearance override functionality is supported for the applicable status received from the following mentioned mandates/agencies.
- U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) - U.S Customs and Border Protection (ESTA) - Canadian Border Security Agency (Canada iAPI) - United Kingdom Border Force (UK iAPI) - Korean Immigration Authorities. (Korean iAPP) - iBorders Advance Passenger Processing - TIMATIC
Canceling the boarding clearance override functionality is supported only for the following mentioned mandates/agencies.
- Canadian Border Security Agency (Canada iAPI) - United Kingdom Border Force (UK iAPI) - Korean Immigration Authorities. (Korean iAPP) - TIMATIC
The service is consumed to override the boarding clearance for a single passenger only and will not support multiple passengers in a single request.
How to use
To override or cancel the following activities, use PassengerBoardingClearanceOverride service.
- Override/Cancel the Timatic request for an infant traveling with a passenger. - Override/Cancel the Advance Passenger Processing (APP). If the passenger’s itinerary contains more than one APP country, responses will be received from both. - Override/Cancel the DHS. TSA will perform per boarding validation with DHS and CBP, and the response will always contain boarding clearance status for DHS and a boarding clearance status for ESTA. - Request to override ESTA. When a BPPR response is received from TSA, a need to override only the ESTA status and not the DHS Status may occur.
The service is consumed to override the boarding clearance for a single passenger only and does not support multiple passengers in single request.
For the passenger traveling with an infant, the override request for both adult and infant should be made using a single request.
Overriding multiple boarding clearances from different mandates associated with the passenger is supported by the service.
