Request Your Secure Flight Records

The Secure Flight program creates a system of records into which the TSA places the data it receives from the airlines and uses to determine whether you are allowed to fly. The collection of this data by the federal government is subject to the requirements of the Privacy Act of 1974 that requires that American citizens have access to the records the government keeps on them.

The Identity Project is currently working on templates (to be posted here) for individuals to use to request their own domestic flight records held by the TSA under the Secure Flight Program. TSA has announced its intention to begin collecting domestic flight records from the airlines beginning in early 2009. These templates will be available shortly.

In addition to preparing requests for TSA recrods of domestic travel, The Identity Project continues to pursue our investigation of DHS records of international travel. Forms and instructions on how to request your international travel records are here.
