Why do you need my birth date and gender to fly?

We collect this information as part of the new government program created in 2011.

Secure Flight Passenger Data (SFPD) is a government program that streamlines the security watch-list matching process. It will improve the travel experience for all passengers. SFPD requires all airlines to provide passenger gender, date of birth, redress number (if applicable), and full name as it appears on their valid government-issued identification.
