Two U.S. lawmakers are proposing a new bill that would place violent flight passengers on a lifetime commercial no-fly list managed by the Transportation Security Administration.

Senator Jack Reed (D-Rhode Island) and U.S. Representative Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), aims to "improve air travel safety, increase traveler protections, reduce the number of in-flight violent incidents, and hold unruly passengers accountable.".

In addition to being placed on a no-fly list, convicted violent passengers would also permanently be banned from participating in the TSA PreCheck or Customs' Global Entry programs.

Unruly violent passengers would be first given a notice from the TSA and an opportunity to appeal before being placed on the permanent no-fly list, said Swalwell told KTVU on Tuesday.

This would be a civil penalty; passengers could also be subject to any local criminal prosecutions.

Currently, passengers are subject to $36,516 of civil penalties for misconduct on a flight, Swalwell's office told KTVU.

Passengers who assault or intimidate a crewmember could be subjected to criminal fines and imprisonment for up to 20 years. »
