SMART AIPORT TIPS IN USA

Secure Flight Overview

Secure Flight is a behind the scenes program that enhances the security of domestic and international commercial air travel through the use of improved watch list matching. By collecting additional passenger data, it will improve the travel experience for all airline passengers, including those who have been misidentified in the past.
When passengers travel, they will be required to provide the following Secure Flight Passenger Data (SFPD) to their airline
when making a reservation:
1. Name as it appears on government-issued I.D. when traveling
2. Date of Birth
3. Vouchers (if applicable)
4. Gender
5. Redress Number (if available)
The airline will transmit this information to Secure Flight, who uses it to perform watch list matching. This serves to prevent individuals on the No Fly List from boarding an aircraft and to identify individuals on the Selectee List for enhanced screening. After matching passenger information against government watch lists, Secure Flight transmits the matching results back to airlines.


Travel Documents / Tickets

In general, all travel documents will be sent to you 21 days prior to departure via 2nd day priority. Overnight delivery can be arranged at additional cost. If we obtained the entry visa for you, the passport will be sent with the travel documents.


Passport

All customers’ passports must be valid for at least 6 months from the return date of your trip. Please consult with your travel agent or Consulate if you have a non-US passport.
