Airlines must share PNR details of international travellers in India

Wednesday, Aug 10, 2022 0

India has brought in a new law that compels airlines to share PNR and personal details of incoming and outgoing international passengers.

The data must be shared 24 hours before departure with customs authorities.

Airlines must supply details including passenger name, age, phone number, email address, and travel itinerary.

The finance ministry said the Passenger Name Record (PNR) Information Regulation is to curb flights from justice of suspects and cut cross-border economic crimes.

The data will be used in ‘the prevention, detection, investigation and prosecution of offences under the Customs Act’, the finance ministry said.

About 60 other countries also collect PNR data of international air travellers.
