  • Positive Passenger/Bag Matching ("PPBM") was common in Europe before the United States, though programs developed here in the years following the the bombing of Pan Am flight 103.
  • It means that the passenger and their bag has to travel on the same flight.
  • If a passenger offloads from the aircraft, the baggage has to be removed also.
  • The idea there is that for security reasons you don't want a passenger putting something on the aircraft (a checked bag) without tying their own life to its contents.
