Cyprus: Airlines Intend to Hand Over Passengers’ Travel History to Authorities

By in

On November 30th, the Cyprus Parliament voted for the introduction of a law that forces airline providers to hand over passengers’ data to the EU member states.

In addition to the passenger’s name, address and contact details, the airline must provide with all payment details and travel history, including booking confirmation, checked-in luggage quantity, passenger arrival information, ticket number, seats and baggage information.

The plenum also adopted an amendment increasing the penalties for violations related to data management. Therefore, the prison term increased from three to five years and the fine – from €17,000 to €30,000 euros.
