Thought this could be really usefull for some people who are travelling shortly -

'UK Government Requirements

From March 2009, as part of measures to ensure aviation safety and security Jet2.com is legally required to provide the UK Home Office with passport data for all passengers departing from and arriving into the UK. You are therefore required to provide Jet2.com with accurate passport data. You may provide this data anytime between the time of your booking and 5 hours before departure. Failure to provide accurate data may result in you being denied boarding.

You may enter the data via manage my booking on the Jet2.com website or via the call centre when making a new booking'

I had booked my flights in January & decided just to check them to make sure times hadn't changed or anything & spotted the above info. I hadn't had an email informing me but its a good job I checked as most people would arrive at the airport 2 hours before the flight by which time would be too late to submit your info as above.

Don't know if its just Jet2 that haven't emailed people yet but its not worth missing your holiday over!!

Hope this helps someone!!

never heard of this-I knew it was now a requirement when flying to the united states rather than fill out the form they used to give you on the plane but this is for any country?

we are flying to paris in april-do we need to do this?
#2
Thanks for the info!
#3
I'm travelling to Florida in April and I know the 'green cards' now have to be filled online before you go, not sure if this is the same thing though as it seems different?

Plus is it only Jet2 that you have to do it with or is it every company? Never heard anything about this!

We are going to Tenerife so it abvoiusly is a requirement travelling within the EU.

You only have to put your passport number, expiry, DOB, counrty of issue & Nationality - not as much info as a green card.

Thats why I thought I should post something as even if it is just Jet2 they didn't tell me about it I just stumbled on it myself last night by luck!

I think it looks pretty important though so thats why I'm telling you lot!! :thumbsup:

totally confused! just called thomas cook who we booked our april eurodisney trip with and they havent heard of this for travelling within europe-the girl told me about the online requirements for america which I already knew about.

surely this would have been big news? I just renewed all the familys passports and they arrived last week-no mention of any of this in the information the passport office sent us then.

Im worried tho that this is one of those things that lands us in hot water at the airport if its true-just looked at ryanair and easyjet sites too and no mention of this.

weird!

Tenerife isn't in the EU, however it is part of Spain, all visitors to Spain have had to give passport information prior to travel for a long time now, about a year I would think.

That's what I'm thinking though the American thing has been from January hasn't it?

On that link there's this for Spanish Government

[I]"Spanish Government Requirements

As part of measures to ensure aviation safety and security, the Spanish Government required all airlines to provide compulsory information on passengers departing the UK for Spain. This information includes full given name, nationality, date of birth and passport number.

Jet2.com comply with the request for API (advance passenger information). Passengers using our online check-in facility will be able to provide their data at the "fast bag-drop", if they have baggage to check-in, or at the departure gate, if they have hand baggage only.

However, it is sensible to remind all our passengers that check in for international flights closes strictly 40 minutes prior to departure, by which time you must have completed the check in process. We continue to strongly recommend that all passengers arrive at the departure airport no later than 1 hour 30 minutes before the scheduled departure time in order to allow sufficient time to complete the check in process and clear Airport Security. If you are planning to travel with excess baggage please allow extra time."

Oh we haven't travelled to Tenerife since last April and I knew I hadn't done it last time.

Just thought if I'd helped at least one person it was worth the time to post the thread so hope I have!!
