Airlines will add new gender options for non-binary passengers

Airlines to offer option for nonbinary travelers

USA airline passengers who don't identify as "male" or "female" will soon have more gender options to choose when booking tickets.

Other airlines say they are working on adding more gender options, including Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Airlines and Southwest Airlines.

The airlines said that they were making the changes to be more inclusive to a diverse range of customers. To be more specific, this new scheme aims to assist non-binary individuals who have an "X" in their identification cards.

CNBC is reporting that Airlines for America, an industry group that represents some of the largest US carriers, including American Airlines, JetBlue Airways and Alaska Airlines, and the International Air Transport Association, which represents most of the world's airlines, recently approved standards for nonbinary passenger identification.

The new gender options to be added include "unspecified" and "undisclosed".

American Airlines is "in the early stages" of adding another pronoun option, the Wall Street Journal said.

'We certainly have a very diverse customer base.

United Airlines representative Andrea Hiller said that their customers will be able to select "M" for male, "F" for female, "U" for undisclosed, or "X" for unspecified when booking a ticket online. The "Mx." option for title will reportedly be available as a choice through United's website and app as well. This means that those who are not covered in the male or female categories will have other options to choose from to identify their sexuality. In addition, Arkansas, Colorado, Main, Minnesota, and Washington, D.C. offer the "nonbinary" choice for driver licenses.

The A4A and the IATA said the change will enable airlines to comply with requirements under USA and foreign laws that passenger information must be in line with a person's ID information used for travel.

The National Center for Transgender Equality called the move "a huge step forward for non-binary representation". They advised transgender people to begin carrying a second form of identification like a passport. The new non-binary gender option will take effect on June 1 as per the A4A's order.
