Secure Flight Rules Now Implemented

By Linda Tancs

Secure Flight is a safety program administered by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration requiring airlines to collect and transmit to TSA the full name, birth date and gender of passengers to better match them against watch lists.  The program is particularly helpful for those travelers whose names are similar to those that may be found on such lists and may erroneously be detained from flying.  The program isn’t new, but its implementation has now begun in earnest.  Travelers should be sure to match their airline travel reservations with their name exactly as it appears on the travel document (e.g., driver’s license or passport) to be used at the checkpoint for identification.
