Passenger Name Record: EU reaches agreement – BBC News

The EU has agreed on a system to share airline passenger details in a bid to improve counter-terrorism efforts.

The Passenger Name Record (PNR) system will allow access to passenger information including names, contact details and credit cards.

Details would be collected from European carrier flights entering or leaving the EU – as well as from those between member countries.

Security concerns were raised following the 13 November attacks in Paris.
