Published August 17, 2016

Secure Flight is an airline passenger pre-screening program, implemented by the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA). To fulfill the program's requirements, UB travelers must provide specific information that matches the government-issued photo identification that will be used for travel before they arrive at the airport.


Secure Flight enhances security by identifying low and high-risk passengers before they arrive at the airport by matching their names against trusted traveler lists and watch lists. Passengers making a reservation are required to provide their full name (as it appears on the government-issued identification they plan to use when traveling), date of birth and gender.

Avoid Boarding Denial: Update Your Profile

Include your name, birth date and gender exactly as it appears on the government-issued ID you will use when traveling. It is extremely important to update your profile with Secure Flight data because airlines have started to deny boarding to travelers who do not have this information in their reservations at the time of check-in.
