Star Alliance Renews Agreement with IATA on Timatic AutoCheck Solution

Star Alliance has renewed its collaboration with IATA on traveller document verification.

The two organisations signed an agreement in Seoul confirming that IATA’s Timatic AutoCheck solution will continue to power Automated Document Check (ADC) for Star Alliance member carriers.

IATA Timatic AutoCheck enables Star Alliance customers checking-in at the airport counter or online to verify that their travel documents are valid and complete for the whole journey, including any transit point before travel begins. This delivers several significant benefits:

• Preventing the embarrassing and distressing situation for passengers of being denied entry to a country on arrival owing to missing or invalid documents;

 • Enabling a seamless experience when travel encompasses multiple carriers. Passengers will no longer need to see an agent to have their travel documents checked and rechecked at transit points;

• Avoiding the passenger fine to airlines for transporting inadmissible passengers.

Jeffrey Goh, CEO Star Alliance said, “This marks another milestone in our continuing strategy to improve the passenger travel experience, especially for those customers who fly on multi-carrier journeys. Our partnership with IATA to extend collaboration on passenger document verification through use of IATA’s Timatic AutoCheck to support our proven solution of the ADC will help ensure a seamless travel experience for our members’ 775 million passengers, a priority that lies at the heart of our strategic repositioning.”
