Justice Undersecretary Markk Perete said on Saturday (Feb. 8) airlines will soon be required to provide passenger information before they arrive in the Philippines.

Amid accusations that airlines have been uncooperative in helping find passengers suspected of being infected with the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), Perete believes that the Advance Passenger Information System (APIS) will be able to solve this problem.

“The APIS requires our airlines to provide the BI passenger details/information before they arrive at our terminals,” said Perete who supervision over the BI

“Such information will be useful, especially in contact tracing efforts,” he added.

Perete said the BI is currently working out the system including making deals with the various airlines.

The justice spokesman said the BI has already procured equipment and trained personnel for the APIS.
