LIAT requires more info for bookings


Passengers wishing to travel on LIAT are being advised of a new booking policy which comes into effect from Monday, January 3, 2011.
The new policy requires the provision of additional information for all travellers, infants and children included, from all of LIAT’s 22 destinations when making a reservation or purchasing tickets.
Passengers will now have to provide their full name, including middle names (as it appears on the passenger’s non-expired government issued photo ID), date of birth and gender.
In addition, all LIAT passengers travelling to and from San Juan, St. Thomas and St. Croix will be required to provide a redress number, if applicable.
These new requirements, a release stated, are driven by LIAT’s compliance with the Secure Flight Programme recently introduced by the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and the airline reiterated that requirements must be provided whether bookings are being done at a LIAT ticket office; through the LIAT Call Centre; on the LIAT website, ; or through a travel agency.
Customers are being cautioned that they will not be able to complete a booking transaction until they provide this information, and a redress number of all the persons for whom reservations are being made or tickets are being purchased.
