    Do you need a passport to fly domestically?

    Someone told me today you need a passport to fly domestically starting 1.1.10 if your state has not switched to the new drivers liscences in accordance with the national ID act. Can anyone confirm or deny?

    Pretty sure that would be all over the media if true. You have likely been very misinformed.

    Here's a link to the Passport rules from Homeland Security for certain out of country flights and re-entry (passports are not needed for domestic flights):

    Re: Do you need a passport to fly domestically?

    I used to fly with my state ID/key card, just because it's always on my belt and thus easy to grab. Couple years ago that ended because the picture ID must have an expiration date. So, maybe whoever you talked to doesn't have a driver's license, etc, and their passport was the only thing that met criteria.

    If that is true then we have officially become the former USSR and live behind the Iron Curtain and will have to show our "papers" everywhere we go!!!

    This is not a political post, just saying.

    I fly frequently. My company would have issued a statement if this had any merit.

    There is some validity to this, but it has not been implemented as intended to date.

    Can we have this thread merged with the 2012 one? Both scenarios are equally plausible.
