    EU parliament approves strict Passenger Name Record for airlines

    “We have adopted an important new tool for fighting terrorists and traffickers”, said Parliament's rapporteur for the proposal, Timothy Kirkhope (UK)

    The European Union Parliament approved on Thursday the directive regulating the use of Passenger Name Record (PNR) data in the EU for the prevention, detection, investigation and prosecution of terrorist offences and serious crime. It will oblige airlines to hand national authorities passengers' data for all flights from third countries to the EU and vice versa.
