TSA Secure Flight Program
Secure Flight is a program federally mandated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The mission of Secure Flight is to enhance the security of air travel through the use of improved watch list matching.
What does this mean for me?
Transportation Security Administration (TSA) procedures require all airlines to correctly identify all customers. As part of this ongoing effort, the TSA has implemented the Secure Flight program, which requires airlines to ask customers for their full name (as it appears on their government issued ID), date of birth, and gender at the time of reservation.
How will I benefit?
The Secure Flight program was developed by the government to meet 9/11 Commission recommendations that the TSA take over watch list name matching functions from airlines. The benefit is that Secure Flight offers a standardized method for the TSA to compare passenger name information to the TSA watch lists. Please visit the Secure Flight Program section of the TSA’s web site for additional information.
