Flash Pass Net avoids eAPIS headaches

February 17, 2010

Flash Pass Net is a new and streamlined alternative to the Customs and Border Protection’s cumbersome eAPIS (Electronic Advance Passenger Information System) that’s now required for international flights.

eAPIS requires pilots to file online manifests before crossing U.S. borders and imposes heavy fines if any of the information is incorrect. It also requires re-entering identical data for repeated flights.

Flash Pass Net helps pilots comply with eAPIS rules by storing information and putting in safeguards designed to eliminate common mistakes. It also saves time by allowing users to avoid using CBP’s Web site.

Flash Pass Net was developed by Lobo Labs.
