Make sure your ready for the new TSA requirements.

As you may know, the TSA mandate requiring full Secure Flight Passenger Data (SFPD) is quickly approaching. The mandate applies to all airlines for flights to/from/within/over the U.S., as well as 100 percent of U.S. carriers' operations regardless of geography. If you are aware of any travel plans during the first couple of weeks of November, it may be a good idea to get this booked in advance as there could be some issues matching up all the records on the implementation date.

Secure Flight is a behind the scenes program designed to enhance the security of US domestic and international commercial air travel through the use of improved watch list matching.

When passengers travel, they will be required to provide the following Secure Flight Passenger Data (SFPD) to their airline when making a reservation:
