ARINC to Deploy Airline Passenger Data Offering for Mexican Govt; Yun Chong Comments

ARINClogoARINC will provide its e-Government offering to the Mexican Government in order to help process individuals as they enter and exit the country on commercial airlines, ARINC said Thursday.

The Mexican Government’s National Institute of Immigration picked the e-Government offering to provide an international network and message processing service that can review advanced passenger information before aircraft land and enhance accounting for tariffs paid by passengers.

“ARINC looks forward to a long and productive relationship with the government of Mexico and our close partners, INM,”said Yun Chong, vice president of ARINC Global Network and IT Solutions.

“Airports and other points of entry must meet border security requirements while still providing the highest levels of customer service,” he added.

The Mexican Government wants the system setup by Dec. 31, 2013 and ARINC is working to meet that goal, according to the company statement.

Once final airline implementations are complete, ARINC will be responsible for transporting a majority of passenger information into the country for the more than 250 commercial airlines in operation.
