The collection and transmission of passenger data mentioned on your passport or ID card (“Advance passenger information”) for non-Schengen flights

Belgian law requires Brussels Airlines to collect your Advance Passenger Information (“API”) data, which are mentioned on your passport or identity card, if you booked a non-Schengen flight, to, from and across Belgium.

These data must be collected during check-in and you will thus be required to provide this data during online check-in or at the airport.

Brussels Airlines will be required to transmit the API to the Belgian passenger information unit at flight closure. The data will be analyzed by the information unit with a purpose to improve border control and fight illegal immigration.
