Government authorities around the world have tightened security considerably at airports so that you can travel safely to your destination.
With that in mind, we are required to collect 'Advance Passenger Information' from all passengers before travel, on behalf of government authorities.
You must provide this information before you will be able to check-in for your flight. You can use ba.com, an airport check-in kiosk or go to a check-in desk to do this.
It is important that the information provided is accurate.
Advance Passenger Information refers to specific passport details and you will be required to supply some or all of the following information:

You must supply the minimum information at least 72 hours before your flight's scheduled departure.
We recommend that you give us this information straight after you have made your booking, or as soon as possible afterwards.
You can add Advance Passenger Information online using Manage My Booking at anytime after you have booked and before you check in.
If you haven't given us this information by the time you check-in, we will ask you for it when you use online check-in, a check-in kiosk or a check-in desk.
