States have long recognized that passenger data supplied by Aircraft Operators is a critical element of the state’s border control and risk management processes. A growing number of States require Aircraft Operators to provide Passenger Data related to certain travel and reservation information held in an Aircraft Operator’s reservation and/or departure control system. The PNRGOV message is designed to provide a consistent approach for all Aircraft Operators required to provide PNR information to States.
PNRGOV messages are intended to facilitate the exchange of such data relevant to different government requirements on PNR data and Airlines reservation systems.
Before 24/12/2014, none of the Airline reservation systems in the world were certified for PNRGOV requirements set by the governments of United Arab Emirates and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which was a very much demanding needs of the region in border control and risk management processes of those countries.
AirArabia one of the major customers of AccelAero aeroMART SELL has communicated their need to comply with the government requirements of UAE and KSA to share Passenger Data related information by obtaining PNRGOV certification.
Being a trendsetter we took the challenge, as a result AccelAero aeroMART SELL reservation system was able to be the first reservation system in the world to get certified on PNRGOV standards for UAE and KSA.
Using interactive PNRGOV message from our reservation system AirArabia, first and largest low cost carrier in Middle East and North Africa operated the first flight on 24th December in 2014.
The main challenge faced by our engineers was to be able to integrate a modern web based AccelAero suite of products which are built on latest cutting edge technologies, with PNRGOV messaging system which uses the legacy EDIFACT technology.
Within a short time span our technical team was able to thoroughly study the integration requirements and execute a successful integration project precisely following the standards. This demonstrate the agility and quick adaptation of the AccelAero team in delivering solutions quickly than any others in the industry. It also showcase the commitment & determination of ISA to be the world leader in providing travel technology solution.
