“A company owned by international airlines said on Wednesday it had won approval from the United States for a system providing passenger details to U.S. border authorities almost instantaneously.

The Geneva-based SITA information technology firm said the system allows airline check-in desks to get the go-ahead within 2 seconds from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection service (CBP) to issue a boarding card.” (Reuters)
