The Transportation Security Administration has officially launched its Secure Flight program, which requires passenger names to match their names on their government-issued identification. The program touches everyone in the airline distribution line, including travel agents, global distribution systems and others, but it's not clear when the requirement will be fully enforced. Paul Ruden, senior vice president for legal and industry affairs at ASTA, said the TSA has worked to make travelers, travel agents and airlines aware of the new security measures.
