Airlines To Begin Asking For More Details On Passengers

August 13, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – Airlines in the United States will be asking for additional information upon approving flight reservations, such as gender and date of birth, in their attempt to thwart potential terrorists.

The measures were originally suggested in 2007, by the commission that investigated the September 11, 2001 attacks on the Twin Towers.

The addition data is hoped to make it easier to match names and dates posted on the TSA’s blacklists, which name off suspected terrorists that may use domestic flights.

Not all airlines are expected to adhere to the new measures, and those that do will most likely only ask for the information at the time of booking, so added delays are not expected to occur.
