AirAsia Partners With INTERPOL

INTERPOL’s I-Checkit passport screening system will be piloted with AirAsia. The system screens passenger passports against the international police organisation’s Stolen and Lost Travel Documents (SLTD) database. AirAsia is the first airline to integrate I-Checkit with check-in systems across an entire travel network. SLTD contains 40 million records from 167 countries. AirAsia can query the database, but will not have direct access to confidential information. Passenger details will not be transmitted to INTERPOL. Passengers travelling on documents in the SLTD database will be flagged to AirAsia and the airline will then contact local authorities. INTERPOL’s National Central Bureau (NCB) in Lyon, France will also be notified. Less than 10 countries systematically screen passengers against the SLTD database currently.
