Additional passenger data for US flight bookings

30 Sep 2010

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is reminding passengers on any flights to, from, within and over the US of the need to provide Secure Flight Passenger Data (SFPD) for all reservations booked on November 1, 2010 and beyond.

Compliance is mandatory.

Failure to provide the required passenger data could result in denial of transport or denial of entry into the boarding area. Airlines will have the right to cancel any reservation without complete passenger information. The TSA has required the carriers to publish these policies to make sure the industry and travellers are aware of the new security mandate.

Information required:

• Full Name (as it appears on passport)
• Gender
• Date of birth    
• Nationality
• Passport/Document type
• Passport/Document issuing country/state
• Passport/Document number
• Passport/Document expiry date
• Redress number (if available)

All the passenger information will be kept confidential and only for use in the Secure Flight Program of TSA.
