7) What happens to my API information?

Once you've given us your API information, it's stored securely on our system until it needs to be sent to the government authorities. The information is then transmitted through a secure network up to 72 hours before your flight is due to go, or sometimes after it's departed. After the information has been sent, it will be stored to meet API requirements and then destroyed.

Keeping your information secure
We comply with UK and EU data protection laws, so you can rest assured that your details are secure. Your API information will only be sent to authorised government agencies for border control and security purposes.
