Some U.S. airlines will start offering new gender options for passengers during the flight booking process.
Airlines like American, Delta, United, Southwest, Alaska and JetBlue have confirmed that they'll offer a gender-neutral option on their booking systems in the next several weeks. It involves adding "undisclosed" and "unspecified" to the current "male" and "female" selections.
The move comes after a trade group for multiple U.S. carriers approved a new standard on handling non-binary traveler identification.
Current TSA rules state that a traveler's flight ticket must indicate the same gender that's listed on their ID.
But now that several states have passed legislation allowing gender-neutral driver's licenses and birth certificates, the travel industry's adapting to the changes.
The updated trade guidance will go into effect June 1. The roll-out of gender-selection changes will vary by airline.
