Change Notice of Secure Flight Passenger Data (SFPD) Requirement


The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) changes the policy in aviation securityTSA requires airline industries to collect and submit Secure Flight Passenger Data (SFPD) which includes full name, date of birth, gender, nationality, passport number, etc. from all the passengers to/from the US. Effective immediately, all reservation made in your GDS must include the following SFPD in the PNR:

  1. Passenger’s full name as shown on the passport
  2. Nationality
  3. Passenger’s date of birth
  4. Passenger’s gender
  5. Passport number
  6. Country of issuing the passport
  7. Expiration date of the passport

Non-compliance with TSA’s requirement may lead to maximum $5,000 fine per passenger and may not be allowed to enter the U.S.  Any debit memo received due to non-compliance will be given to the agencies

The fine is to much so we follow and the passengers too should follow or there will be no reservation.

Submission of passport copy is the best way to avoid typo/misspelled information which will also cause some problem with your travel.
