Secure flight information

Under the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Secure Flight program, Air New Zealand is required to collect Secure Flight Passenger Data which includes a passenger's full name (as it appears on government-issued Identification), date of birth, gender, and TSA issued Redress Number (if available).

The purpose of the Secure Flight program is to enhance the security of air travel through the use of improved watch list matching to identify known and suspected terrorists.

Failure to provide full Secure Flight Passenger Data may result in denial of transport or denial of authority to enter the boarding area.

Redress Number

A Redress Number is a unique number the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) may occasionally elect to issue in order to help verify a person's identity and eliminate TSA watchlist misidentification.
