In this post, we discuss the new ID rules for domestic air travel and how their enforcement has been pushed back to October 2020.
Good news for air travelers!
U.S. domestic air travelers were granted a reprieve on meeting new flight rules.
All 50 states have met the January 22, 2019 deadline to become compliant with Real ID or were granted an extension to do.
This means that passengers can continue to use their driver’s licenses at airport security checks for domestic flights.
Your current Illinois driver’s license or ID card (DL/ID) will be accepted at airports, military bases, and secure federal facilities until Oct. 1, 2020.
The new ID rules for domestic flights
The Real ID Act was passed by Congress in 2005, in the wake of 9/11, to raise security standards nationally for all state-issued driver’s licenses.
