From the 6th April 2024, advance passenger information for all persons on board and information about the international flight is to be provided no earlier than 48 hours and no later than 2 hours prior to the aircraft’s expected departure to or from the UK. Information about the flight and those on board can be provided using the sGAR portal, approved third-party apps (that will be listed on or via direct system to systems connection.
