American Airlines To Inhibit Ticketing Without Secure Data
Thursday, 16 September 2010
Starting on September 15, 2010, American Airlines will not allow ticketing for any bookings for which there is no Secure Flight Passenger Data (SFPD) entered into the system. The SPFD is required by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and collects additional data on passengers to ensure their proper identification and better watch-list matching.

SPFD includes the following information: name as it appears on government-issued identification, gender, date of birth, and redress number should one be available. This information must be given to the airline when travelers are booking their registration. The TSA regulations for SFPD have been in effect since August 15, 2009 for domestic flights and October 31, 2009 for international flights.

American Airlines new regulations come as a result of the TSA's announcement that all flights scheduled for November 1, 2010 or later will require the SFPD for ticketing. The SFPD information must be transmitted a minimum of 72 hours before departure.
