This article reports that the tourism industry has been urged to remind clients traveling to the U.S. to submit the full address of where they will stay on the first night in advance of travel or have the details with them at check-in. Since October 4, 2005, the U.S. authorities have required this additional Advanced Passenger Information prior to departure. Some tour operators are concerned it could cause delays. But airlines should have a few weeks to adjust before the requirement is enforced with fines--and delays to passengers who don't comply. British Airways is asking customers to enter the details online.
