Agreement between the EU and the United States on the processing and transfer of passenger name records
Over the past decade the USA has profiled all passengers entering their country, checking whether they might potentially be terrorists.
Passenger name records (PNR) are what passengers give to airlines when they book or buy tickets and check in. They can include information like names, addresses, passport numbers, travel routes and credit card information.
Airlines have thus found themselves caught between the requirements set out in provisions of EU privacy laws and demands for access to their booking systems by third countries.
The practice was legitimised by agreements concluded between the EU and the USA and Australia. The Commission also proposed an EU PNR system.
