The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recently announced the implementation of its Secure Flight program. Under this program, airlines will gather a passenger’s full name, date of birth and gender when making an airline reservation to determine if the passenger is a match to the No Fly or Selectee List. By providing information data elements of gender and date of birth, the program will more effectively help prevent misidentification of passengers who have similar names to individuals on a Watch list. Additionally, under the program, the TSA will have the responsibility for matching this information against the Watch list instead of individual airlines. The program is currently limited to domestic flights. However, TSA indicated that beginning in late 2009, it will expand the function to international flights. The TSA stated that its goal is to review 100% of all passengers on domestic commercial flights by early 2010 and 100% of all international commercial flights by the end of 2010.
