The matching of airline passenger info. against terrorist watchlist records is a frontline defense against acts of terrorism that target the our civil aviation system. Passengers identified as matches to the No-Fly list are prohibited from boarding commercial flights, while those matched to the Selectee list are required to undergo additional screening.
