If your Cruise Nation holiday includes British Airways scheduled flights, we will issue your e-tickets approximately 14 days prior to travel, these tickets will need to be printed by you and presented at the airport to the British Airways check in desk where you will then be provided with your boarding passes. Online Check-in is available between 24 hours and 1 hour before your flight departs (2 hours for flights departing the USA). Please ensure the airline locator is presented at check-in for your flight. Full flight details are provided on your confirmation invoice that has already been provided.
Advance Passenger Information (also known as API or APIS) means your Passport/Identity Card details and in some instances, your contact information, are provided to the authorities before you travel.
British Airways may only provide each country's Customs & Immigration authorities with the relevant API or booking data required by law. This is governed by Data Protection laws applicable in the UK and the requesting country.
It is important that you provide API for each passenger travelling with you. Any inaccurate or incomplete data provided could delay your journey, either at check-in or with the immigration authorities. Cruise Nation nor British Airways cannot accept responsibility for incorrect or incomplete data provided.
