Secure Flight Program
We have introduced the Secure Flight Program at the request of the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
What is the Secure Flight Program?
This program was implemented by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to improve security measures on civilian flights departing from, arriving in, or flying over the U.S.
The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) compares boarding lists from all airlines with their watch list at the time of reservation.
The implementation of this program means that all airlines are obliged to ask for required passenger information when a reservation is made, and the required passenger details must be completed no later than 72 hours* prior to departure.
Please be aware that if information is not entered for flights subject to the program 72 hours prior to departure or on upon ticketing, whichever is earlier, it may not be possible to issue tickets or boarding may be denied.
Reservations may be canceled if information for the Secure Flight Program is not entered.
- *If making a reservation within 72 hours of departure, the information must be entered when the reservation is made.

How to Enter Information
Go to our website and enter items 1 to 4 below on the reservation screen to complete your information.
For item 5, please contact the International Reservation Center.
Customer Information to be Entered
- 1.Name (as it appears on your passport)
- 3.Date of birth (in Western years)
- 5.Redress Number (where applicable)*
- *What is a Redress Number?
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issues these numbers as a way of resolving problems experienced by passengers who are mistakenly put on the watch list for incidental reasons, such as having the same first and last name as a known terrorist.
You must apply to the Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (TRIP) to get a Redress Number.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requires you to provide your full name, date of birth, and gender for the purpose of watch list screening, under the authority of 49 U.S.C. section 114, the intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 and 49 C.F.R parts 1540 and 1560. You may also provide your Redress Number, if available. Failure to provide your full name, date of birth, and gender may result in denial of transport or denial of authority to enter the boarding area. TSA may share information you provide with law enforcement or intelligence agencies or others under its published system of records notice.
