Dubai – In a move to elevate the seamless travel experience, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and Star Alliance have forged a deeper collaboration by introducing Timatic AutoCheck. This cutting-edge travel documentation and verification system, adopted by the Alliance, are set to streamline operations for its 26 member airlines and promote contactless travel.

Timatic AutoCheck offers an intuitive and efficient interface, facilitating travelers, airlines, and travel professionals to access accurate immigration information effortlessly. With the entire document verification process automated and personalized instructions tailored for each passenger, the system ensures a hassle-free journey.


As passenger traffic is projected to double by 2040, optimizing airport processes becomes imperative. Automation of tasks like travel documentation verification is crucial in this context. Timatic AutoCheck is poised to play a pivotal role in advancing the transition towards contactless travel. Star Alliance anticipates conducting travel document checks for over 340 million travelers annually via Timatic AutoCheck.


“The Star Alliance is committed to enhancing the customer experience. Our partnership with IATA for the Timatic AutoCheck platform is a testament to this commitment. We believe this initiative will not only enhance operational efficiency for our member airlines but also significantly improve the airport experience for our customers. As travelers increasingly demand seamless journeys with minimal hassle, our adoption of the Timatic platform is a major step forward,” remarked Theo Panagiotoulias, CEO of Star Alliance.


Willie Walsh, IATA’s Director General, expressed his satisfaction with the continued partnership, highlighting Timatic AutoCheck as a milestone in the quest for efficiency and convenience within the travel industry. He emphasized how the system empowers passengers to navigate travel regulations effortlessly, instilling confidence and peace of mind before embarking on their journeys.

According to IATA’s Global Passenger Survey (GPS), complex visa requirements deter many travelers seeking convenient, digital visa processes. The survey revealed that 36% of travelers have been discouraged from visiting certain destinations due to immigration requirements, with process complexity being the main deterrent for 49% of respondents.

In light of travelers’ willingness to utilize online processes and share information, Timatic AutoCheck offers a customer-friendly solution. It allows travelers to verify compliance with immigration requirements before heading to the airport, catering to the evolving preferences of modern travelers.
