What is Secure Flight Passenger Data?
TSA’s Secure Flight program requires that all passengers provide the first, middle and last name, date of birth and gender exactly as they appear on their government-issued photo ID for all reservations. If you have a Known Traveler and/or Redress number, you must provide that information, too.
Changes beginning November 1, 2010
Effective November 1, 2010, TSA will require that complete Secure Flight Passenger Data be included in all reservations. If your reservation doesn’t include complete Secure Flight Passenger Data exactly as it appears on your government-issued photo ID, you may be delayed when you check in. You will be unable to travel without providing this information.
If you book with a travel agent or on another website, you must provide your Secure Flight Passenger Data when you buy your ticket. Please contact your travel agent and provide your information at least 72 hours before your flight if they didn’t request your Secure Flight Passenger Data when you booked. If your travel agent is unable to update your information, please call US Airways Reservations.
Adding your information
US Airways has been collecting Secure Flight Passenger Data for all reservations booked on usairways.com, with US Airways Reservations and at the airport since the fall of 2009, so if you booked with US, you should be okay. If you booked with an agency or website that did not collect your data please contact your booking source to provide it.
Do I need to enter my information every time I book?
Yes. However, if you store your information in your Dividend Miles account, we’ll populate your information when you book on usairways.com.

How will my information be kept safe?
All personal information will be collected, used, distributed, stored and deleted in accordance with stringent guidelines and all applicable privacy laws and regulations.
What is a Redress number?
If you feel that you’ve been misidentified and have been delayed or denied boarding, denied entry into the U.S. or been subject to enhanced screening or inspection, please contact the DHS Traveler Redress Inquiry Program to seek resolution and to apply for a redress number. Then, provide your redress number when you book to resolve possible watch list misidentification issues.
