What is the Mobile Passport App by Airside?

From August 2014 to January 2022, the Mobile Passport application by Airside enabled U.S. and Canadian passport holders to submit passport information and answers regarding travel entry to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on a mobile device. 

Airside designed the Mobile Passport App to reduce the associated administrative and operating functions carried out by CBP, increase the quality of inspections, streamline the traveler’s inspection process, and shorten overall entry wait times (as compared to traditional primary processing).

On February 1, 2022, Airside’s Mobile Passport App was discontinued for the use of submitting passport and travel entry information to CBP. Airside would like to thank CBP and the Airports Council International-North America for the opportunity to provide millions of travelers with the first app for the Mobile Passport Control (MPC) program. We are excited by the path created for the expanded use of mobile passports and driver’s licenses, such as the American Airlines Mobile ID for TSA PreCheck®, now available on the Airside App.
