Additional data required for travellers to the US


The US authorities have introduced new regulations on air passenger data.


From 1 November, as part of the Secure Flight Program, passengers must include their date of birth and gender in addition to their full name on all bookings no later than 72 hours before their intended departure. This regulation applies to all international flights to and from the United States as well as to flights within the US, irrespective of when the booking was made. Passengers who fail to provide the necessary Secure Flight Passenger Data may be refused boarding by the US authorities.


Passengers planning to travel on or after 1 November 2010 who have already made a booking and are in possession of a ticket that does not include the full Secure Flight Passenger Data are urgently advised to complete their personal details before departure. They can provide this information themselves online via > “My Bookings” > “Retrieve single booking” or they can submit it via the Lufthansa hotline on +49 1805 805 805.


Detailed information about the Secure Flight Program can be downloaded from the US Transportation Security Administration’s website at
