Americans can fly gender-neutral from 2024

US airlines will offer passengers the opportunity to purchase gender-neutral tickets from the end of 2024. They adapt their computer systems to do so. The gender-neutral tickets will show an X with gender.

The Airlines for America airline group, including American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and Southwest Airlines, promised this in a letter to Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon, a Democrat who has been committed to the rights of transgender and non-binary. persons. Wyden, in a letter, thanks the airlines for their โ€œmeaningful stepโ€.

United and American Airlines already offer X-gender tickets on domestic flights, but other airlines had not yet modified their booking systems.

Driver‘s license and passport

Oregon was the first state to allow motorists to obtain a gender-neutral driver’s license in 2017. Meanwhile, 21 states offer the option of a gender-neutral identity card. Since March 11, Americans can also obtain a gender-neutral passport. The passport is issued by the federal government.

In the Netherlands, a few people received an X in their passports after the intervention of the court. However, nothing is regulated by law in the Netherlands.
