Borders: Personal Records

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 10 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department in how many and what proportion of UK air passenger movements (a) other passenger information and (b) passenger name record data are gathered. (253335)

Other Passenger Information (OPI) is known in the aviation industry as Passenger Name Record (PNR) data. Carriers will only be required to provide OPI to e-Borders to the extent that it is known to the carrier i.e. held within the reservation system. OPI is currently only collected on a limited number of routes.

It is UKBA policy not to provide details of the routes for security and commercial reasons.
