Effective October 31st, 2009, TSA has implemented Secure Flight Program.
Secure Flight is a behind the scenes program that enhances the security of domestic and international commercial air travel through the use of improved watch list matching. By collecting additional passenger data, it will... improve the travel experience for all airline passengers, including those who have been misidentified in the past.
When passengers travel, they will be required to provide the following Secure Flight Passenger Data (SFPD) to their airline or travel agency when making a reservation:
• Name as it appears on government-issued I.D. when traveling
• Date of Birth
• Redress Number (if available)
The airline will transmit this information to Secure Flight, who uses it to perform watch list matching. This serves to prevent individuals on the No Fly List from boarding an aircraft and to identify individuals on the Selectee List for enhanced screening. After matching passenger information against government watch lists, Secure Flight transmits the matching results back to airlines.
The aforementioned changes are federally mandated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration and are set forth in the Secure Flight Final Rule, published in the Federal Register Volume 73, Number 209. To learn more visit www.tsa.gov/SecureFlight
