US eAPIS Part135 (Commercial Flights)

You can submit Part135 (Charter Flights) eAPIS to the CBP through FL3XX.



To ensure successful eAPIS 135 submission to CBP,

1) the operator MUST have an ICAO and/or IATA Airline designator code (3, or 2 letters) AND

2) the flight subject to submission MUST have a 3 or 4-digit Flight Number.  (e.g. MA123).

When you have a flight arriving, or departing to/from the United States we auto-populate the eAPIS data in the Dispatch module

First, notify FL3XX Support to activate this feature for you. We will let you know once it is active.

In the meantime, in the Settings, add the Emergency Contacts in the Integrations section / APIS:

Then, add your APIS 91 and/or 135 Sender ID and Password. This will ensure that we redirect any TSA correspondence directly to you.


Don't forget to check your AOC settings for the Flight Prefix, ICAO and/or IATA code.

Check your flight number(s) to ensure they comply with CBP's requirements as per the Warning at the top of this article.


In Dispatch under the Migration tab we display the crew and passenger data and we also display yellow and red warnings of missing data with explanations of what needs to be added before the file can be submitted to the CBP. You can ignore the yellow warnings, we auto-correct them before submission, but the red warnings have to be corrected. Below is an example of when your flight arrives in the US.



In cases of a US arrival, the next step is to add the Crew and Passenger's US addresses. If a PAX or a Crew member has a US home address, we show the word Home, meaning that you can select the address. If the PAX, Crew does not have a US address, click first on the PAX/Crew name then on the + Add address button. In the popup window add the address and save it. 


Once all addresses in the US and other missing data is added at the bottom of the page the Submit eAPIS 135-Crew List and the Submit eAPIS 135-Pax List buttons appear. Click on them and in a few seconds we submit the file and show you the confirmation number we receive from the CBP.
