Secure Flight Program

Secure Flight is a behind the scenes program that streamlines the watch list matching process. Administered by the Transportation Security Administration, Secure Flight will require all airlines to provide:

  • a passenger's name as it appears on the government issued ID they plan to travel with,
  • date of birth,
  • gender, and
  • known redress number (optional, assigned by redress process).

Any passenger who believes he/she has been delayed or denied boarding; delayed or denied entry into the U.S. at a port of entry; or been subject to enhanced screening or inspection may seek redress through the DHS Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (DHS TRIP). DHS TRIP provides a single portal for travelers to seek redress for adverse screening experiences and to resolve possible watch list misidentification issues.
