ASTA Statement on REAL ID Delay

Published on : Saturday, January 9, 2016

downloadAmerican Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) Senior Vice President of Government and Industry Affairs Eben Peck issues this statement regarding the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) decision today to delay full implementation of the REAL ID Act until January 22, 2018:

“The American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) supports the decision by DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson to delay full implementation of the REAL ID Act to alleviate confusion among the traveling public of whether or not their state-issued identification card would be rejected when boarding a commercial flight in the U.S. The DHS action comes after several alarmist news reports this week gave the impression that driver’s licenses in several states would soon be rejected as an appropriate form of identification for domestic air travel as a result of new federal ID standards. As you can imagine, this caused confusion among travelers, many of whom called their travel agents for guidance.
