Security

TSA - Transportation Security Administration

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has thorough screenings at the main security checkpoints of all U.S. airports. Anyone passing through a security checkpoint will be required to have a government-issued photo ID and either a Boarding Pass or a TSA approved Security Document. As a result, a Customer's security experience may vary by airport.

TSA Secure Flight

Silver Airways has been working in cooperation with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to introduce Secure Flight, a federally mandated program designed to help enhance the security of domestic and international commercial air travel through the use of improved watch list matching.
Silver Airways is now required to collect additional Secure Flight Passenger Data, which includes:
  • Your full name, exactly as it appears on the current (non-expired) government-issued photo ID that you will be traveling with
  • Date of birth
  • Gender
  • The TSA-issued Redress Number (if applicable)
The TSA determined that making date of birth and gender mandatory data elements would greatly reduce the number of passengers misidentified as a match to the watch list when fully implemented. It is to your advantage to provide the above information to potentially prevent delays or inconveniences at the airport, especially for those individuals who have similar names to those on the watch lists.
