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.
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.
