Governments use advance passenger data in order to make decisions on immigration and security issues. These decisions can only be informed if the APIS data is 100% accurate. Currently, this isn’t the case and the onus is being put on the airlines to improve the quality of that data since governments are not able to effectively share APIS data between them, for valid reasons of local privacy and data security regulations (such as GDPR in Europe and Privacy and Safe Harbor Acts in the US).
Unless governments can be confident in the data they get, they cannot be confident in the quality of their decision making.
Zamna’s engagement with multiple governments recognises the need for improved passenger data quality in the context of aviation and border. Zamna is also tackling the challenge of accurately establishing individual identity for the provision of government services, for both citizens and visitors – in the US, Europe and Middle East.
