Passenger Name Records Act (PNRA)

Terrorists and other dangerous criminals operate around the globe, online, in networks and across borders. They regularly use airlines as a means of transport. The use of data on airline passengers, internationally known as passenger name records (PNRs), has already proven effective in other countries for fighting terrorism and other forms of serious crime. If Switzerland is to be able to use this efficient instrument, it needs to enact the required legislation. From April 13 to July 31, 2022 the consultation on the Passenger Name Records Act (PNRA) was conducted. At its meeting on 15 May 2024, the Federal Council adopted the dispatch on the Passenger Name Records Act and forwarded it to Parliament.
