The Deployment Guide provides an overview of how the BoardingPass API is deployed and provides guidelines of how airline applications can integrate efficiently and securely with the API environments for development, QA and production versions of your application. The document also provides guidelines on troubleshooting problems.
The API is accessed via the internet, either directly by applications issuing boarding passes or by mobile devices receiving and displaying passes which are connected to the internet via cellular or WIFI networks.
As applications for issuing boarding passes are typically hosted in airline data centres, some centres may have security policies that restrict outbound connections. This document outlines options provided by SITA for dealing with these restrictions.
