The Department of Homeland Security is accepting through Aug. 30 comments on the proposed extension of an information collection entitled “Security Programs for Foreign Air Carriers.” Foreign air carriers must carry out security measures to provide for the safety of persons and property traveling on flights provided by the foreign air carrier against acts of criminal violence and air piracy as well as the introduction of explosives, incendiaries or weapons. The information collected includes a master crew list of all flight and cabin crew members flying to and from the U.S., the flight crew list on a flight-by-flight basis, passenger information on a flight-by-flight basis, and total amount of cargo screened.
