We'll be asking you for a bit more information when you book a reservation. The reason? A new, federally-mandated program called Secure Flight.
Run by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Secure Flight requires that we collect each passenger’s:
- Full name (as it appears on the government-issued photo ID you travel with)
- Date of birth
- DHS-issued Redress Number* (if applicable)
According to the TSA, Secure Flight will greatly reduce the number of passengers misidentified as matches to the watch list. Providing the required information will help prevent delays at the airport, particularly for passengers who have names similar to those on the watch list.
*A Redress Number is assigned by DHS to customers who believe they’ve been mistakenly matched to a name on the watch list to prevent misidentification. Find out more at tsa.gov.
