Real ID Notice – UPDATED

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Transportation Security Administration changed the enforcement date for REAL ID to October 1, 2021.

Read the TSA update here.

Effective October 1, 2021, all commercial airlines in the US will require a REAL ID compliant photo ID to travel, this includes Honor Flight. As of September 2019, Illinois is compliant, but only if your Illinois ID Card or Drivers License is the new style. Veterans and guardians who do not have a REAL ID compliant ID must use a US Passport to travel.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has advised us veterans and guardians MUST have a REAL ID compliant photo ID to travel with Honor Flight after October 1, 2021.

You can obtain a REAL ID from the Illinois Secretary of State. For complete information, visit the IL SOS REAL ID page.
