The three Sinn Fein MEPs from
the Republic of Ireland are to vote against a proposed EU law that will require
airlines to hand over data on passengers flying in and out of the EU. The information will include passengers’ names, passport and contact details along with travel and
credit card information. Those in favour of the Passenger Name Record Directive
or PNR say it will help in the fight against terrorism. But the Dublin MEP Lynn
Boylan argues there’s no proof to show the collection of PNR data will help the
authorities to track terrorists.
