Title: Passenger Manifest Information.

OMB Control Number: 2105-0534.

Expiration Date: January 31, 2006.

Type of Request: Extension without change of a previously approved collection.

Abstract: Public Law 101-604 (entitled the Aviation Security Improvement Act of 1990, or “ASIA 90”, and later codified as 49 U.S.C. 44909) requires that certificated air carriers and large foreign air carriers collect the full name of each U.S. citizen traveling on flight segments to or from the United States and solicit a contact name and telephone number. In case of an aviation disaster, airlines would be required to provide the information to the Department of State and, in certain instances, to the National Transportation Safety Board. Each carrier would develop its own collection system. The Passenger Manifest Information, Final Rule (14 CFR 243), was published in the Federal Register, Vol. 63, No. 32 (February 18, 1998). The rule was effective March 20, 1998.

Respondents: U.S. air carriers, foreign air carriers, travel agents and air travelers.

Estimated Total Burden on Respondents: 1.05 million hours.

Estimated Respondents: 23,245 (excluding air travelers).

Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the continued collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the current information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information being collected, and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record.
