Purpose of processing and legal basis

We process personal data in coordination with the provisions of the EU general data protection regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz; BDSG):

We process personal data to meet contractual obligations in accordance with sect. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR. This specifically comprises:

  • Issuing of a flight ticket
  • Submission of a booking confirmation
  • Provision of flight-related services booked by you and flight-related information
  • Processing of check-in from invitation to waiting list processing and baggage processing

We also process your data to preserve our legitimate interests in accordance with sect. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f) GDPR

  • in order to supply you with relevant information on your booked flight and travel destination
  • for purposes of preventing fraud, e.g. credit card abuse, identity fraud, fraudulent obtaining of special conditions or rates
  • for assertion of legal claims, including cash collection, and defences in legal disputes
  • for purposes of auditing
  • to ensure IT security and IT operation of the airline
  • to ensure flight security
  • for marketing as far as you have not objected to use of your data
  • for purposes of compilation of statistics for international flights

We process your data for certain purposes based on your consent in accordance with sect. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

Consent once given may be revoked at any time. This shall also apply to revocation of declarations of consent that were given to us before the application of the GDPR, i.e. before 25 May 2018. Revocation of consent shall only by effective for the future and shall not affect lawfulness of the data processed until the revocation.

If we are legally required to do this, we will process personal data in order to meet obligations under commercial or tax law or to meet requirements under the law on security (e.g. § 7 LuftSiG). For further information on archiving time limits, see “Duration of processing activities”.

In the following cases, we will transmit data based on legal requirements to public authorities or are obligated to provide your data:

API (Advance Passenger Information)

1. a) API (Advance Passenger Information): Recording and transmission of required passenger data

An increasing number of destination countries are committing airlines to transmit the data of passengers who enter or leave the country, and in part also when flying over the respective country. Such legal provisions usually include transmission of data on identity and travel documents (passport, visa) of the fliers taken on board and the crew members.

These data are usually not available to the airline and therefore must be recorded briefly before departure; this is increasingly often done using the “machine-readable zone” in newer travel documents. Recording serves only direct transmission to the public authorities of the destination country. Expansion of the API obligation to travels into the European Union is intended for the next years.

Duration of processing activities

Your personal data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purposes named. We may need to continue to store your data until the end of the archiving obligations and time limits imposed by the legislator or the supervisory authorities that may result from the Commercial Code, the Tax Code and the Anti-Money-Laundering Act, and that usually are between 6 and 10 years. We may also store your data until the end of the legal expiration periods (i.e. usually 3 years; in individual cases also up to 30 years), as far as this is required to assert, exercise or defend against legal claims. The corresponding data will be deleted routinely after this.

Who will receive your data?

In the context of the above processing activities and the respective legal basis named (execution of the contract, legitimate interest, with consent or due to statutory processing obligations), your data may be passed on to the following categories of recipients:

  • Agents, e.g. service providers for ground processing and other connected supplementary services
  • Other airlines that perform part of the transport
  • Other service providers, e.g. provision of the website, newsletter dispatch, feedback handling, compilation of statistics of international flight traffic
  • Official authorities and public authorities, e.g. due to immigration provisions or police and investigative activities.

It is possible that personal data may be transmitted to third countries or international organisations in this context. To protect you and your personal data, appropriate safeguards are intended for such data transmissions in accordance and in harmony with the legal prerequisite.

As far as such transfers are not based on a legal basis or take place into a country for which no resolution of appropriateness that was passed by the EU Commission is available, we use the EU standard contract clauses.

Information on EU standard contract clauses can be found on the websites of the European Union.

Data protection rights of data subjects

We want to design our processing activities transparently. It is important to us that data subjects can exercise the following rights in addition to the right to object when the respective statutory condition is met:

  • Right to information, sect. 15 GDPR
  • Right to rectification, sect. 16 GDPR
  • Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’), sect. 17 GDPR
  • Right to restriction of processing, sect. 18 GDPR
  • Right to data portability, sect. 20 GDPR
  • Right to object, sect. 21 GDPR

In order to exercise your rights, you can turn to by email.

In addition to this, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in accordance with sect. 77 GDPR in conjunction with § 19 BDSG. The supervisory authority relevant for Avantiair is:

Hessischer Beauftragter für Datenschutz und Informationsfreiheit
Gustav-Stresemann-Ring 1
D-65189 Wiesbaden
Phone: +49 (0) 611 1408146

Withdrawal right

If you have given your consent to processing of your personal data, we hereby inform you that you can withdraw this consent in writing at any time towards the data protection officer.

Please note that the consent withdrawn by you will only be effective for the future and does not influence lawfulness of processing in the past. In some cases, we have the right to continue to process your personal data on another legal basis – such as to perform a contract – in spite of your withdrawal.
