- What is the difference between a charter airline and scheduled airline?
A charter airline operates flights by contracting with one entity to provide specific air transportation for a group of passengers. The chartered determines when and where the group travels. A scheduled airline has set flights on set dates and tickets are open for public purchase.
A Public charter allows the client to make tickets available to the general public, and control the selling aspect of their product. Private charters normally transport large groups of passengers, for example footballs teams - and are restricted from marketing the sale of tickets to individual passengers.
- Will we still have to go through the airport security screening if we are chartering a flight?
Security screening is under the jurisdiction of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Passengers on charter flights must adhere to the same TSA requirements for all flights operating within or to and from the United States. The TSA may be contacted at www.tsa.gov for any questions.

- What is APIS?
Every air carrier, foreign and domestic, operating a passenger flight flying to or from the United States must electronically transmit to United States Customs a passenger and crew manifest containing specific passenger information.
APIS (Advance Passenger Information System) is an automated system capable of performing database queries on air passengers traveling from the United States to a foreign country or to the United States from a foreign country. U.S. Customs, in cooperation with the U.S. Immigrations and Naturalization Service (INS) and the airline industry, initiated the development of APIS to collect information from air passengers prior to departure.
The following information is required of every passenger on the aircraft:
- Name as it appears on passport
- Date of Birth
- Passport Number
- Country of Issue
Note: When asked, please "enable macros" on this worksheet in order for the information to be in the correct format. Once you have opened the worksheet refer to the instruction tab for the proper procedure to input and forward your passenger APIS information to World Airways.
Once the passenger information is received by World Airways the APIS information will be transmitted to the necessary authorities.
Please click here to open the spreadsheet, which must be completed and transmitted to World Airways to meet these requirements.
If you have any questions regarding the APIS procedures, please call the World Airways Sales Department at 770-632-8173.
