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 circumstances, 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.
